Story


The quiet town of Delmar, New York, was considered anything but dangerous...until 21-year-old Chris Porco ( Matt Barr) was accused of brutally murdering his father Peter and disfiguring his mother Joan (Lolita Davidovich) in a savage axe attack, a claim made all the more shocking when the case's lead detective Joe Sullivan (Eric McCormack) believed Joan had identified Chris as her attacker. Weeks after the crime, however, Joan would refute Detective Sullivan's story, while the town of Delmar and many of Chris' former friends and girlfriends would also rally to his defense, despite Sullivan's fierce mission to prove his guilt. Prosecutors believed that beneath Chris' picture-perfect facade was a devious and cunning sociopath who would stop at nothing to keep his lies hidden. In the end, he was convicted of second-degree murder of his father, but many in the town of Delmar firmly believe the jury wrongfully convicted an innocent young man.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's too cut-and-dried: You'll wish the movie were as salacious as it would have been if this were '90s Lifetime..”
by Mandi Bierly [Entertainment Weekly]
“..as presented, it's moderately suspenseful but also an awfully dry, unimaginative approach to the story..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
