Premiering Monday, October 31 at 9 pm ET/PT
I really enjoyed this thriller....Laura Prepon plays Eve, whose
husband is kidnapped and murdered before the movie even starts. She wants to
find her daughter's body, but the killer won't tell her where it is before he is
executed. She becomes a forensic sculptor (like Angela on "Bones") and starts
getting calls from another child kidnapper/murderer about another little girl,
Jane. The story gets very involved as she tries to protect Jane and gets
involved in this whole cat-and-mouse game with the killer. There are four guys
in the show, so we know that one of them will probably turn out to be the
killer, but the fun is in guessing which one it will be.
The movie has fun, romance, and all kinds of action and adventure. I really
recommend it. It was also great to see Kavan Smith, who I loved in "Eureka" as
Deputy Andy! He plays a nosy reporter.
Check it out on Lifetime this week!
Based on the bestselling crime novel, the Lifetime Original
Movie Iris Johansen's The Killing Game follows forensic sculptor Eve Duncan
(Laura Prepon Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea) when, 10 years after the
disappearance and murder of her seven year old daughter Bonnie, she is contacted
by a man claiming to be her killer. Taunted by the man's mysterious clues about
Bonnie's case, Eve becomes involved in his sadistic game when he threatens to
kill another little girl that he targeted because she resembles her precious
daughter. Memories haunt her as she is caught in a web of deceit and gambles
with her own life tracking down the deadly serial killer in the hopes of saving
the girls life and discovering Bonnie's final resting place. Naomi Judd also
stars as Eve's mother "Sandra Duncan."
One of 18 of Johansen's novels centered on the character of Eve Duncan, The
Killing Game has sold almost 2 million copies throughout the world. The
character Eve Duncan will return in Johansen's next novel Bonnie, which will be
released this October 2011. Iris Johansen's The Killing Game is from Front
Street Pictures and Anne Carlucci Productions. Anne Carlucci (Taken from Me: The
Tiffany Rubin Story) executive produces and Bobby Roth (Reviving Ophelia)
directs the script from Jill Blotevogel (Eureka ).
