SECRET OBSESSION (2019) Review

Newlywed Jennifer (Brenda Song) is brutally confronted at a dark rest stop. While soothing from her wounds, she can’t recall no matter what from her past, including the torment. Her husband, Russell (Mike Vogel), is just grateful she’s alive and eager to get her home. As he reestablishes her to their secluded mountain estate, Investigator Page (Dennis Haysbert) pursues Jennifer’s assailant – his own daughter went missing and was never found. The same destiny now awaits Jennifer, except somebody realizes that her loving warden is actually her captor.

For the first half, I was on the edge of my seat, especially, the first five minutes, which introduce us to a woman on the run from a killer before something unexpected happens, getting her in even more trouble! In the beginning it is like a non-stop suspense, which does not let up once. The performances are tremendous, especially the film’s psychopathic villain who is really chilling and sadistic. Dennis Haysbert plays a cop trying to solve the film’s mystery and he has a great scene early on that shows a tragic side of him I’ve never seen. There are some twists and turns, some easily predicted, some not (certain things cropped up abruptly). What seemed off to me is that when they brought the victim into the hospital she was a “female, no id”. Then a man rushes into the hospital saying he had a call and his wife Jennifer was in a car accident. He immediately gets told that she is in OR. Too many plot holes and a script that could’ve been edited for the better! Because it otherwise had some good potential, this went unarmored due to bad writing.
