Sarah Butler shines again
18 December 2020 | by vbacon-111-578329See all my reviews

I will admit that I've been a huge fan of Sarah Butler. So I'm biased. Still, she does a great job playing the damsel in distress here.

However, I can only go as high as 7 on this film. There were at least a couple of unrealistic scenarios (arguably plot holes), and the whole premise of hypnosis being used in the way suggested, brings the film down a couple of nothces.

The plot is way too formulaic. If you haven't figured out how the while thing 30 minutes in, then you haven't watched enough Lifetime movies.

So why do I give it such a high rating? I find Lifetime movies fun to watch and I did enjoy watching this.
