Storyline

After getting dropped by her publisher, celebrated novelist Hannah Ryan uses the negative forces in her life to inspire the creation of a pulp crime serial that posts new chapters to subscriber's devices every week. The initial release is a modest success but the work becomes a massive hit after a real life murder takes place that bears a striking similarity to Hannah's story. Is it really just a coincidence or is it possible that a copycat serial killer is acting out the fictitious murders in real life? And is he going to strike again once Hannah releases her next chapter? Written by Incendo Productions

lesser Lifetime
9 June 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Novelist Hannah Ryan (Vanessa Ray) is struggling after getting dumped by her husband for her friend and getting dropped by her publisher. She decides to change course and write a pulp crime serial for internet subscribers. Her first chapter has her character kill her publisher. When her real world former publisher gets killed in the same manner, Hannah initially becomes a suspect and her serial starts to gain success.

This Lifetime TV movie is rather bland. I like Vanessa Ray on Blue Bloods. I don't mind the premise which has some potential. The directing contributes nothing. There is little tension and the intensity flatlines. The danger doesn't seem to be directed at Hannah and she quickly stops being a suspect. There is nothing elevating the drama. It's a nice mystery but the killer makes little sense unless she's a complete non-sense psycho. That lack of logic is really unsatisfying. It skips over a much better logical suspect. This could be good in more competent hands.
