Storyline

"The Craigslist Killer" follows the dark, mysterious life Philip Markoff (Jake McDorman) conducted online while preparing for a promising future as a doctor and a life of happiness with his fiancée, Megan McAllister (Agnes Bruckner). Seemingly destined for greatness as one of Boston University's brightest med students, Markoff could do no wrong in the eyes of Megan, his friends, fellow students and professors. But hidden from those close to him was the violent wrath only he and his victims knew - beginning with his alleged April 14, 2009, first-degree murder of a masseuse who advertised her services on Craigslist. When police discover that the brutal killing and a number of other attacks on women were all connected to advertisements placed on Craigslist, their investigation ultimately leads them to Markoff.

Movie
3 January 2011 | by (Charleston, South Carolina) – See all my reviews

I thought that this movie was very well done for a Lifetime movie. I thought that this movie was going to be bad but in fact it was thrilling. I was very interested through out the movie. The acting wasn't great but it was a reasonably okay casting. Phillip's acting was up and down, depending on the scenes but that only detracted from the movie just a little. I thought the directing was all right. The lines were just okay. At times they were really good, and others they were just hokey. I would recommend watching but not something you gotta see right away. I give this a good rating because it is not the normal crap movie that Lifetime produces. It is a quality film that deserves recognition. I am glad this was filmed because it does show the true evil that anybody can have. Well, what you define as evil.
