After witnessing the accidental death of their classmate Heidi, a group of friends – four rich socialites – flee the scene, not realizing that Heidi’s roommate Lisa witnessed everything. When Lisa starts to drop hints that she knows about the “accident,” the friends decide they can’t trust her to stay quiet, and plot to kill Lisa before she rats them out, burying her body beneath the floorboards in one of their basements. Before long, though, the guilt and paranoia starts to consume them, and they become convinced that Lisa may actually be alive and looking for revenge. Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart”.

Last night Lifetime premiered a new movie called The Murder Pact. It could also be called Lifetime’s attempt to recreate Pretty Little Liars. I’ve never actually watched Pretty Little Liars, but I know enough about it to recognize the similarities. Even so, I actually enjoyed last night’s movie a lot more than I expected. There were of course the usual Lifetime trimmings, but I felt like it knew its tone well and stuck to it. And if there’s anything I like as much as high school Lifetime movies, it’s college Lifetime movies, especially when the students are filthy rich.
It all starts at a party where a girl named Heidi (Madeleine Dauer) accidentally falls off the roof of a building to her death. There are four fellow students on the roof with her when it happens and, fearing they’ll be blamed for it, they decide to pretend they weren’t there. They’re all in agreement about this very quickly, which really tells you all you need to know about these people’s morals. Unfortunately they don’t take into consideration that Heidi’s roommate Lisa (Sara Kapner) was standing on the sidewalk taking photos before the fall.
