With no new theatrical releases on the horizon, streaming services are capitalizing on the appetites of content-hungry fans. Netflix is closing out April – or whatever month we're in now – with a new film sure to appeal to fans of Knives Out, or any of those '90s thrillers where a couple moves into a new house and the neighbors are acting shady.
Dangerous Lies stars Camila Mendes (Riverdale) and Jessie T. Usher (The Boys) as two caretakers for the elderly Leonard (Elliott Gould). When he dies suddenly, his will leaves his entire estate to them. Naturally, this arouses the suspicions of a detective (Sasha Alexander), Leonard's attorney (Jamie Chung), and a mysterious stranger (Cam Gigandet). The stakes get higher when the couple finds a chest full of cash in the attic, which some people naturally want to keep for themselves.
While this certainly won't be in the upper echelon of domestic thrillers, and won't have the same cultural cache as Netflix's Tiger King, it's sure to keep the cabin fever-addled brains of the quarantined entertained for 90 minutes.
Dangerous Lies hits Netflix on Friday, April 30.
