Storyline

"Secrets of Eden" centers on Stephen Drew, an adored small-town minister in Haverhill, Vermont, and the brutal and sadistic murder-suicide of Alice and George Hayward, the town's most beloved parishioners. While the community never imagined such a destiny for the Haywards, dark secrets begin to surface, causing many to realize they may not have been the perfect family everyone thought they were. When evidence of an affair between Alice and Reverend Drew surfaces, Detective Catherine Benicasa suspects that the crime may actually be more complicated than it appeared and sets her eyes on the likable minister as the prime suspect. Now Katie, the Haywards' orphaned 15-year-old daughter, may be the only key to uncover the disturbing secrets of what happened behind closed doors on that fateful night and the suffering they endured as a "not so perfect" family.

Surprisingly Good
16 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a surprisingly good film for an afternoon movie. My husband and I kept changing our minds about who had done it. There is a surprise at the end which we hadn't seen coming.

When there is an apparent murder/suicide in a small town, the detective who investigates finds evidence of an affair between a rather attractive pastor and the deceased woman.

The town scenes are attractively portrayed. The acting was very good all round and looking back there are clues along the way. The flashbacks were occasionally a bit confusing but at the end they seem to fit in with what has happened. Some of the flash backs were quite chilling and the pastor's calm persona was quite creepy at times.

I didn't expect much from an afternoon movie but this is well above average.
