The Killing Game (2011 Lifetime)
Synopsis (via Lifetime)
A forensic sculptor risks her life after receiving clues from her daughter’s murderer.
Eve (Very boring Laura Prepon) sits in a prison meeting room and begs a death row convict to give her information on her daughter’s body. He tells her to ask him in hell because he is going to the electric chair if four hours.
Ten years later, Eve is a forensic evidence sculptor. Her mother, NAOMI JUDD, worries about her daughter’s devotion to her job. A body shows up, and Eve rushes to the morgue. A note is left for her to “dig deeper.” More pre-teen skeletons are found on the scene. (Jesus. Dead kids are not going well with my wine, Lifetime. Can we get some babysitter stalkers or Cheerleader murders? Thanks.)
The killer, Dom, calls Eve and takes responsibility for murdering her daughter. A rib bone in a box is sent to her, and the whole thing is very creepy. Detectives start surveillance and tap the phones. Eve and Joe get more calls and try to save a little girl’s life. The girl’s foster mother is murdered, and Eve takes the little girl into her custody for safety with the help of a reporter named Mark.
The calls from Don continue to come in. Eve promises to protect Jane and goes into witness protection with the FBI or something. Who cares.
Eve finds more bodies of victims with her friend Sarah and her dog. Joe shows up and helps Eve, after reprimanding her for disappearing. Then they make out, in this very unromantic movie. They look at forensic evidence of the victims and try to find the killer.
Eve leaves Jane and heads to Arizona to find more clues. I’m not sure what they find, but I do know Joe has his shirt off and in is underwear in a scene profession his love for Eve. (So at least this movie gave us that!)
A car explosion happens, so that must have been expensive. Joe takes a photo from the car, and they realize that Mark, the reporter, is Dom.
Is Eve arrested for kidnapping Jane? Ugh. What is happening? Police are murdered who were surveying Jane. Mark kidnaps Jane and calls Eve to set up a meeting point. (I guess she is out of jail.)
In the middle of nowhere, Eve meets with who she thinks is Mark. Only it isn’t Mark; it is Robert Spiro, who was a detective on the case. Blah Blah Blach, Eve knew the whole time and takes him out.
The rest of the movie is spent looking for Jane in the woods. They find her—the end.
