Secret Obsession – If you’ve noticed a glass-dungeon-shaped hole forming in your life as you wait for season 2 of Penn Badgley’s You, then Netflix’s movie Secret Obsession could very well help fill it. Especially seeing as we still don’t have a release date for the second series of You, so you could be waiting a while…
The dark drama stars Brenda Song as newlywed Jennifer, who is brutally attacked one night at a dark rest stop. While healing from her injuries, she can’t recall anything from her past, including the ordeal.
While her husband, Russell (Mike Vogel) appears grateful that she’s alive and is eager to get her home, everything is not quite what it seems. As he reintroduces her to their secluded mountain estate – with no neighbour closer than a mile away – Detective Page (Dennis Haysbert) is hellbent on pursing Jennifer’s assailant. His own daughter went missing and was never found, so this is personal for Frank Page.
The same fate now awaits Jennifer, unless someone realises that her loving caretaker is actually her captor… Run, Jennifer, run!!
*Never leaves the house again*
Who is Russell really? Will Jennifer recover from amnesia in the nick of time? Where is Jennifer’s actual husband? We fear he may have endured a similar fate to Joe Goldberg’s girlfriend Beck…
If you recognise lead star Brenda, you may have seen her in New Girl and Scandal, while co-star Mike has starred in Stephen King’s Under the Dome, and Bates Motel.
Secret Obsession launches on Netflix on 18th July.
