Brilliant and touching
A waste of 90 minutes of my life
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
This is a dark and sometimes deeply uncomfortable drama
I really liked this movie, from start to end. I found it very interesting and I actually didn't think it was predictable as others mentioned. I'd say there was a few moments that you could say were predictable, but those scenes still had mystery and excitement and were intentionally put there for viewer enjoyment. The scene when a nurse is injecting the expectant mother is an obvious moment, when you can predict that the nurse is not working with the hospital. However the movie does this on purpose to create that mystery. As the nurse looks through the glass door watching that she isn't caught. Also the villain is portrayed really well and in the end you will see how obsessed and delusional the character was, which gave the storyline merit. What could have been a really stupid twist at the end, was actually very believable due to great acting and writing.I would have liked to see an outcome for what happened to the poor little dog.Overall, a very entertaining movie. I was able to watch it without using my laptop or phone.
You know, every time you see a cute little dog in a movie like this, the "villain" winds up killing it--a cheap device to prove how "evil" they are. As an animal lover, I am so weary of this scenario. Though I was wary as soon as they showed the dog, I hoped this convention would be bypassed this time. I was actually enjoying this movie up to the point the heroine discovered the dog's body in the crib, and annoyed that this crime was never referred to again. Did anyone but me feel for the dog's elderly female owner? who was bashed on the head and also lost her pet, likely her only companion. Or are we just supposed to forget that and be happy that the heroine's seemingly endless pregnancy finally culminated in a birth.
This film seemed to be in the league of a Stephen King thriller, or just another horror flick at best.Expecting their baby after the wife has suffered 2 previous miscarriages, our young couple is visited by a woman, also seemingly pregnant at their garage sale. Mayhem breaks loose when the woman goes missing and it soon appears that the husband was having an affair with her and may have done her in as well.Of course, there is always the family friend, an attorney who is seeking public office. Does he have his own personal agenda in this situation?The ending is somewhat of a shocker. Our missing lady deserves to be institutionalized.
This Lifetime Movie Channel has a very pregnant woman involved in a murder investigation as her husband is accused of murdering another very pregnant woman. Despite the fact that they have known each other since they were children, she seems to have no trouble believing the other woman was his mistress, that the baby was his, that he stabbed both to death, moved the body to where it could not be found, then put the murder weapon and her bloody dress in their trash for pickup in a few days.... until her neighbor gets her head bashed in while her husband is in custody, at which point she decides that the police are wrong and she goes off to investigate on her own.This revelation takes place about two-thirds of the way through the movie and after that it becomes a decent enough bit of private-citizen-out-investigates-the-cops. Unfortunately, by the time this happened, not only had I figured out the solution to the mystery, but I was thoroughly disgusted with the way the lead was written. I stuck around to the end, but only to marvel at the obvious issues of the movie. As is all too typical for these LMN TV-movies, it all turns into a woman-at-risk piece, shot in low light levels for that air of lurking paranoia.The structure of the traditional murder mystery is that society and the individual are dealt a terrible blow by murder, but that solution and punishment of the criminal work mightily to mitigate that. As the form evolved and matured, it came to recognize that there is no going back. However, this movie is simply pandering to paranoia.I should note that actors involved do a fine job. It's just a pity that they couldn't have done so with a less loathsome script.
