In Family of Lies (2017) a mother and father going on a road trip are murdered before reaching their destination.Their death leaves three siblings on their own.
The oldest sibling, Emily, being of age, becomes the legal guardian of her brother and sister. In the midst of a bad week, Emily gets a call about a job she forgot she applied for. The problem, the job is in Louisiana.  Hoping for a fresh start and to get away from the trouble Emily has been sensing since the murder of her parents which includes someone peering into their windows at night, Emily agrees to relocate her and her siblings to Louisiana, much to the chagrin of her brother and sister. 


In their new home in Lousiana, the siblings continue to experience someone peering into their windows at night. All the while, Emily begins investigating why her parents were murdered. When the truth is revealed it may not set Emily free but rather put her and her siblings in more danger.


I really enjoyed this movie which premiered on Lifetime Movie Network on Saturday, 30 December 2017. The movie was well written and kept you guessing until the very end. The twist was something I didn’t see coming and would not have guessed. I watched the movie again Sunday night to see if I missed anything the first go round and nothing stood out to me.

Of late, Lifetime Movie Network has been playing some good movies and this is definitely one of them.

If you get a chance to see Family of Lies, I highly recommend you do. If you’ve seen the movie already, what are your thoughts?
