LOS ANGELES, CA (June 23, 2020) – A heart-pounding, sit-on-the-edge of your beach chair weekend arrives July 10-12 with the Lifetime premiere of the Obsession “Thrillogy.” The three-night movie event tells the disturbing story of Madison Turner (Celeste Desjardins) and her new roommate, Blake Collins (Travis Nelson) who soon become lovers. But their romantic high quickly crashes as Blake’s warped obsession and fixation with Madison leads them both down a road of danger and deceit. Each intertwined movie will premiere at 8 pm ET/PT on three consecutive nights. The Obsession “Thrillogy” includes:
Obsession: Stalked by My Lover – Friday, July 10
When college student Madison Turner’s roommate abruptly leaves, she is forced to quickly find a new one. With very few suitable prospects for a roommate, Madison settles on Blake Collins (Nelson) – attractive, charismatic, and, best of all, willing to pay her 2 months’ rent in advance. They hit it off instantly and soon their relationship turns from that of platonic roommates to a romantic couple. But Blake has ulterior motives, with his sights set on more than meets the eye.
Obsession: Escaping My Ex – Saturday, July 11
Blake (Nelson) cannot get Madison (Desjardins) out of his mind and will stop at nothing to have her by his side – even if it means kidnapping her. With his nefarious plan underway, Blake extorts money from Madison’s sister Evie (Kelly Hope Taylor) in hopes of financing his and Madison’s future.
Obsession: Her Final Vengeance – Sunday, July 12
After the traumatic experience with Blake (Nelson), Madison (Desjardins) is trying to forget the horrific ordeal he’s put her through. But little does Madison know that Blake’s psychotic sister, Lisa (Anastasia Phillips), is determined to settle the score.
The Obsession “Thrillogy” movies are executive produced by Pierre David, Tom Berry, Sebastian Battro, and Christine Conradt of Reel One Entertainment. Melissa Cassera wrote all three scripts. Alexandre Carriere directs Obsession: Stalked by my Lover and Obsession: Escaping My Ex. Curtis Crawford directs the last movie, Obsession: Her Final Vengeance.
