Brenda Song’s upcoming movie is quite unlike her Disney projects – it is a dark take on relationships and love. In the first trailer released for Netflix’s psychological ‘Secret Obsession’, Song stars as a newlywed, Jennifer, who is in a life-threatening situation supposedly with the one she is in love with. The story progresses as she wakes up following a vicious attack unable to remember her past.
The Brenda Song movie will be coming to Netflix on July 18, 2019.
According to the official synopsis, ‘Secret Obsession’ follows newlywed Jennifer (Brenda Song) after she brutally attacked at a dark rest stop. While healing from her injuries, she can’t recall anything from her past, including the ordeal. Her husband, Russell (Mike Vogel), is just thankful she’s alive and eager to get her home. As he reintroduces her to their secluded mountain estate, Detective Page (Dennis Haysbert) pursues Jennifer’s assailant — his own daughter went missing and was never found. The same fate now awaits Jennifer, unless someone realizes that her loving caretaker is actually her captor.
Netflix’s latest original thriller, Secret Obsession, takes viewers on a thrilling and terrifying ride as Jennifer (Brenda Song) recovers from a mysterious attack that leaves her with amnesia. She can’t even remember her own husband, Russell (Mike Vogel), let alone who attacked her (or why). As she heals from her injuries and as a detective looks into her case, both of them start to realize that all is not as it seems at Jennifer and Russell’s idyllic (and suspiciously secluded) mountain home — but can Jennifer regain her memory and discover the truth in time to save herself? You know the drill in these melodramatic made-for-TV-movie types, right?
If that plot isn’t enough to suck you in for an hour-and-a-half of creepy, over-the-top entertainment, perhaps the cast of Secret Obsession, all of whom are bringing their A-game to the exaggerated thriller, will do the trick. The cast includes people you’ve definitely seen in something else (yes, one of them is the Allstate guy), but in case you find yourself furrowing your brow and wondering why you know that face, here’s a rundown of Secret Obsession’s players.
Brenda Song as Jennifer Williams
You most definitely know Brenda Song from Disney. She is best known for her portrayal of London Tipton in ‘The Suite Life of Zack & Cody’ and ‘The Suite Life on Deck’. Tipton’s character is noted as one of the Disney Channel’s longest continuous characters.
Mike Vogel as Russell Williams
Vogel is best known for his work on ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’, ‘The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’, ‘Grind’, ‘Poseidon’, ‘Blue Valentine’, ‘The Help’, ‘Bates Motel’, ‘Cloverfield’, ‘Under the Dome’ and ‘The Case for Christ’
‘Secret Obsession’ is directed by Peter Sullivan, who is known for his work such as ‘Secret Society’, ‘Killer Mountain’, ‘The Perfect Student’, ‘A Christmas Proposal’, ‘Termination Point’, and ‘Blind Injustice’ among others.
The first trailer for Netflix’s ‘Secret Obsession’ follows the story of Brenda Song’s Jennifer, a newlywed who, after a brutal attack at a rest stop, cannot seem to recall who she is or anything about her past. She is picked up at the hospital by her husband Russell (played by Mike Vogel), but we soon see that not everything is what it looks like.
Turns out, Russell is not who he claims to be and the duo has some sort of a one-sided history to them. What we don’t understand is that Netflix has practically told the entire story in the trailer itself – there is very little left to the imagination and we don’t know how we feel about thrillers like that.
Where to watch
‘Secret Obsession’ will be available to stream on Netflix on July 18, 2019.
