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

Life imitates art
12 March 2018 | by lukegunswellSee all my reviews

This movie speaks to me in two different levels. One one hand the main character Hannah is a writer and as an aspiring novelist myself, I'm instantly interested in her. Secondly the murders here are a case of life imitating art which I fine particularly interesting when it comes to crime stories. Hannah is striking it big with her new murder web novel serial but much controversy arises once a copycat killer appears

Viewers will certainly be kept guessing trying to find the killer with all the red herrings thrown about. Admittedly the true killer didnt really get any hints and almost came from nowhere. This movie kept me fully enticed into the plot and I kinda wish it was a bit longer. The only problem had was the character of Jason . Lmn has a habit of making the male characters either controlling psychopaths or idiotic fools who only think with their penises. Jason cheated on Hannah and left her for another woman in the past and forces her to pay alimony ( I find the concept of alimony to be utterly stupid and greedy) even though she's strapped for cash . And he has the audacity to act entitled. If I was Hannah I would've wrote his death in a heart beat.

It's probably me looking too deep into things but I believe a theme of best selling murder is that murder is corruptive. Hannahs publishing company threaten to sue her, her ex husband constantly demands money from her and the killers motive is influenced by money despite being pretty well off. All in all, this was a great murder mystery.
