Doomsday cults go killer crazy on Lifetime’s Ungodly Acts!

Ungodly Acts Lifetime

Don’t you hate it when doomsday cults go on murder sprees and leave dead bodies all over the local parks and then get all confused when their dates of the rapture pass by with no one ascending to Heaven? Lifetime has heard your anguished cries and is severing up a heavy dose of religious wackery with Ungodly Acts! We got a doomsday cult, a “did they or didn’t they” for if the cult ordered a murder, and flashbacks and different stories of the truth. This looks like some good Lifetime fun!

Inspired by actual events. When Melissa Cooper’s body is found hanging from a swing set, the 27-year-old’s death is initially ruled a suicide. But two weeks later a young man, Adam, comes forward claiming he murdered Melissa on the orders of her husband, Daniel Cooper. Adam says that Daniel is the leader of an end times religious cult and that Daniel controls every aspect of the followers’ lives. Daniel Cooper denies all wrongdoing in his wife’s death, but other members of the “Church of the Blessed Light” claim that the charismatic Daniel indeed has a secret life. Melissa’s case is investigated, exploring what really went on behind closed doors in Daniel and Melissa’s marriage, whether Adam acted on his own accord, if Melissa was killed on the orders of her fanatical, newlywed husband or, if Melissa was murdered at all.

Ungodly Acts stars Megan Park, Brant Daugherty, Morgan Taylor Campbell, Christie Burke, and Ashleigh Gryzko. It’s directed by Carl Bessai, who helmed that unneeded Embrace of the Vampire remake that forgot to have a popular actress as the main character, and written by Paul Ziller (cool flick Sea Beast)

Ungodly Acts premieres Saturday, September 19th on Lifetime!

Debbie Macomber’s Mr. Miracle comes to Earth to make you love on Hallmark Channel!

Mr Miracle Debbie Macomber Hallmark

The entire movie is Michelle Harrison acting out a play using Christmas ornaments!

Once again, angels are mucking around on Christmas for love. Are things really that calm that angels can waste time playing matchmaker when wars and crap are going on? Can I get a little angel love for having me win the lottery? It’s not like you guys are doing anything right now, it’s only November, too early for Christmas matchmaking.

Debbie Macomber’s Mr. Miracle is the latest angel meddling, and Debbie Macomber is a Hallmark Channel regular. Her book series Cedar Cove is one of their tv series, and she’s had three other books made into Hallmark films: Mrs. Miracle, Miracle in Manhattan (based on Call Me Mrs. Miracle), and Trading Christmas (based on When Christmas Comes) Two of those books look to be part of the same loose Miracle series as Debbie Macomber’s Mr. Miracle, but I really don’t know how connected they are, nor how connected they are to this film, especially since it starts a first-time guardian angel.

When guardian angel Harry Mills (Morrow) arrives on Earth for the first time, he’s got a lot to learn about life as a human. But this miracle worker-in-training ignores the advice of his seasoned heavenly mentor, Celeste (Harrison), to eagerly take on his first assignment — helping a young woman named Addie (Irvin) find the confidence to change her life. Addie has always struggled in school and is currently feeling overwhelmed and indecisive trying to live up to her father’s expectations to become a doctor. Now, after her father’s sudden passing, Addie is living with her mom Sharon (Redmond), filled with regret and uncertainty while attempting to finish her degree all while avoiding her childhood nemesis and neighbor, Erich (Francis). Enter Harry, posing as her fumbling, well-meaning new English teacher who takes on the task of guiding her to see the wonderful things she can’t see in herself. With a deadline of Christmas day to change Addie’s perspective, or else say goodbye to his own Earthly existence, Harry is clueless but endearing in his effort to make Addie open up to a life full of promise — and even love — while learning a few life lessons of his own along the way.

Debbie Macomber’s Mr. Miracle is directed by Carl Bessai (that Embrace of the Vampire remake) and written by Heather Maidat (the Mad tv series). It stars Rob Morrow (Numb3rs) as Harry Mills, Michelle Harrison (Turbulence 3: Heavy Metal) as Celeste, Britt Irvin (Bratz Babyz Save Christmas) as Addie Folsom, Sarah-Jane Redmond (Sorority Murder) as Sharon Folsom, Andrew Francis (Slugterra: Return of the Elementals) as Erich Simmons, and Vanesa Tomasino (Chupacabra vs. the Alamo) as Elaina.

Hey, if you are into angel stuff, and you aren’t totally burnt out on Christmas angel stuff, then you will be very excited, so be sure to check it out!

Debbie Macomber’s Mr. Miracle premieres December 6th on Hallmark Channel! It’s one of The 12 New Movies of Christmas as part of their Countdown to Christmas celebration.
