Storyline

Denise has been slaving away as an obit writer for the Tribune, dying for her chance to become a reporter. One of the tribune's writers has recently died of old age, and Denise jumps at the opportunity to take over his job, tactlessly hounding her boss, ROGER, in the midst of the funeral.

When she comes to, amidst all the police activity, Denise spots SIMON, her rival and one-time lover, performing his new reporting duties. The next day, Denise's friend and coworker, LUKE, informs her of the name of last night's victim. Shocked, Denise realizes that she saw the deceased's obituary in a newspaper last night, before the time of death. But when she tries to track down the article, it's nowhere to be found. Soon, Denise's computer displays a mysterious message: another obit. But when she tries to print she ends up with blank paper, and the message erases ... Written by Kevin Commins

Josie Bissett is Denise Wilcox, an obituary writer at her local newspaper. When obituaries of persons not yet dead start appearing on her computer screen, Denise is baffled, and afraid, as the premature obituaries become real in a short time. No one, including her former lover (Grant Nickalls), a colleague (Craig Olejnik), or her boss seems to believe Denise about the obituaries, and she begins to wonder if she is crazy.

The climax would have been shocking for me, but it was not because I read the plot summary on IMDb before seeing the movie, and sadly, it contained spoilers. Do not read the plot summary on IMDb, and the climax will be better. In spite of that nuisance, I really enjoyed the movie. Josie Bissett does a nice job here and the story was rather creative. Premiered on Lifetime July 23.
