Presumed Dead in Paradise


(2014) ★★

Lifetime: PREMIERE Thursday 7 January, 11pm

Boarding school rebel Malese Jow spends an island holiday in St Isabel with wicked stepmother Olivia d’Abo. Lifetime puts a scenic spin on a Natalee Holloway-ish case, this time with a much happier ending. As can be inferred from the title.

It’ll be complicated getting there, though, thanks to hilariously fake websites and a tricky conspiracy plot. Attractively filmed in San Juan, Puerto Rico, it’s a long way from Pet Sematary for Mary Lambert, who directs the clichéd material with a touch more flair than it warrants.

Certificate: PG

Duration: 90min
