Unwritten Obsession [Movie Review]


Skye (Haley WebbTeen Wolfe TV series, Final Destination), a struggling writer needs some extra money so she takes in struggling writer Holly (Chelsea LopezForgotten Pheonix, Blood Heist), who is willing to pay her $2000 to proof read her manuscript. Everything seems good at first, but it’s not long until we learn that both have an agenda for their choices.


Unwritten Obsession (2017) is mostly set in Skye’s house where we watch the interaction between the two women. Straight away we can see that Holly is a bit strange and possibly dangerous. Therefore, we are left to wonder why would Skye risk her life by allowing this woman to stay in her house while she (Holly) works on her manuscript. As mentioned earlier, Skye does need the money, but is she so desperate for it she’s heeding the warning signs, especially when Holly starts crossing the line with Skype by going through her personal things and not respecting Skye’s privacy. Even after Skye asks her to stop going through her personal items, especially those in the attic, Holly can’t resist the urge.

But Skye has secrets of her own and sometimes your own secrets will allow you to ignore the actions of  those you normally wouldn’t forgive. And Sky’s secrets go beyond the laws of sanity but not the laws of desperation for desperation has no laws. Though Skye has secrets, it’s Holly’s secret that’s really the game changer.

This was one of those movies that I absolutely loved and can watch over and over again for there’s always something you missed the first go round. Well, when you know the outcome, you’re able to concentrate on other going ons in the movie.

If you get a chance to see this movie please do. You won’t be disappointed especially the ending. I did not see that coming. This is what makes Lifetime Movies worth watching, just when you think it’s over, it’s not.
