Storyline

Estela Duarte is divorcing her cheating husband, has moved her two children in with her mom, and has taken the only writing job she can find - as a reporter for the tabloid, El Grito. She covers a series of grisly murders and mutilations of well-dressed women, each of whom turns out to be a mistress of rich men, including her father-in-law. She sees patterns and shares them with Ibarra, the cop in charge of the investigations. Her editor gives her professional support, her friend Laura gives her emotional support, and her mother helps her guess when the next murder will occur. But will all this be enough to protect Estela and Laura from danger? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

bloody Mexican serial killer
8 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

It's 2000 Mexico City. Someone is killing young women. Inexperienced reporter and divorced mother Estela is sent to cover the murder because she's the only one in the office late at night. The victim is wearing rich clothes and her arm is chopped off. Estela is struggling after refusing to get money from her cheating husband. The murders continue with detective Ibarra investigating. The women turn out to be mistresses but Ibarra refuses to admit that a serial killer is on the loose at first. One of the women turns out to be Estela's powerful father-in-law's mistress.

The best comparison I can come up with is a bloodier American TV movie. It is reasonably shoot and the acting is generally good. Yareli Arizmendi is a compelling actress. The style is a bit weak and the story moves a bit too slowly. Some of the writing is awkward like an editor who refuses to do a sensational story. His reasons are convoluted and non-sense. Any editor worth his salt would splash MISTRESS SERIAL KILLER on the front page. The best friend knows that the killer is scheduled to kill again on a certain date. Yet she is willing to go on a date. There are some problems. The best part of the movie is the culture of rich men and their mistresses. The crime ridden city is a good backdrop. The movie has some promise but it needs a better director.
