Just when you think you’ve scraped the bottom of the barrel on Netflix, they go ahead and drop another totally addicting TV series or movie and suddenly, you’re addicted again. Later this month, they’ll be releasing Dangerous Lies, an all-new murderous thriller that looks way too good and I can’t wait to see.
- You’ll recognize a bunch of the cast here. Dangerous Lies stars Riverdale‘s Camila Mendes as Katie, a caregiver struggling for cash who’s looking after an elderly man named Leonard. Leonard is played by Elliot Gould who’s basically a Hollywood legend but who you’ll most likely recognize most as Monica’s dad on Friends. Twilight‘s Cam Gigandet also appears, and Katie’s husband is played by Jessie T. Usher, whose biggest role to date was on the Starz series Survivor’s Remorse. Well done on casting, Netflix!
- So what’s it all about? Netflix describes Dangerous Lies as follows: “A broke caregiver unexpectedly inherits her patient’s estate, but dark secrets swirl around her newfound wealth, tangling her in deceit and anger.” It sounds simple but it’s so much darker.
- Murder just might be involved here… After moving into the house Katie inherits, she and her husband Adam (Usher) stumble upon a massive box of cash in the attic. How did it get there and why is it there? The fact that a local real estate agent seems all too keen for the couple to sell the property and that the house seems to be ripe for a lot of very strange events, and you’ve got a recipe for a solid Netflix mystery movie here. Dangerous Lies is the title, so it’s safe to assume someone’s life might be in danger here, and I have a feeling it might be Katie and Adam’s…
- This is basically like Riverdale and a terrible Lifetime movie in one. Which is why it’s going to be amazing and I can’t wait to watch it. This is the kind of light-hearted entertainment I need in my life right now!
- Sadly, Dangerous Lies isn’t out just yet. Netflix won’t drop the movie until April 30, but that’s only a couple of weeks away, which gives us plenty of time to re-watch the trailer repeatedly to try to figure out what in the hell is going on. Ugh, it’s going to be so good.
