Storyline

Following the mysterious death of a fellow member of a local Mystery Writers' Workshop, a librarian and struggling mystery novelist named Julia London steals the deceased author's unpublished manuscript and purports it to be her own. Once the novel, entitled "Grave Misconduct", becomes a publishing phenomenon, a series of grisly murders occur that mirror events in the book and eventually implicate Julia herself. Now she must work to discover the identity of the killer while simultaneously protecting herself from being publicly exposed. Written by Armand Mastroianni

Complete DTV Garbage
17 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, this is marginally better than Shark Swarm, which was penned by the same duo of Chernov and Rosiak. I don't know how many chances an unknown writer will get in this business, but these guys are burning all of their chances right out of the gate. To summarize, this film is awful. I saw it on Lifetime a week ago and had a lot of trouble sitting through it. The writers make many of the same fatal errors that doomed their other efforts. They don't develop any of the characters and the ideas and actions of all involved are thoughtless and cliché'd. Grave Misconduct was a movie marketed to women and shown on a women's cable channel. Even so, it didn't have to be this bad.

I give this a 1, but it is better than Shark Swarm. These are just very amateur films made without a hint of passion, logic, or talent.
