Camila Mendes’ ‘Dangerous Lies’ gives off ‘Riverdale’ feels

Netflix’s new thriller Dangerous Lies is like the mystery series Riverdale which is full of lies, deceit, and murder.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, people have been lounging at home all day. Most individuals have been probably streaming into different online platforms. In an attempt to attract most people who thirst for entertainment, Netflix improved its streaming library with the release of new titles.

One of this new releases is Dangerous Lies. This new film will make all viewers feel a lot more connected with one another during this ongoing period of isolation.

Dangerous Lies cast and plot

Dangerous Lies is an American thriller film directed by Michael Scott. It is starred by famous celebrities such as Camila Mendes, Jessie T. Usher, Jamie Chung, Cam Gigandet, Sasha Alexander, as well as Elliott Gould.

The plot follows a young couple, Katie Franklin (Camila Mendes) and Adam (Jessie T. Usher), living on the breadline. In the first scene, Katie and Adam stumbled across an aborted robbery at the diner where she works. Because of the incident, Katie lost her job.

Consequently, Katie took a caretaker job to a wealthy elderly man, in his sprawling, empty Chicago estate. The two grew close, but when he unexpectedly passed away, everything changed.

Katie became the sole heir of the old man and she and her husband, are pulled into a complex web of lies, deception, and murder. In order to survive, Katie will have to question everyone’s motives – even the people she loves.

Dangerous Lies resembles mystery series Riverdale

As the title implies, Netflix thriller Dangerous lies has a lot of twists and turns.

It can be perfectly compared to Camila Mendes’ series Riverdale as it features mysterious murders, esque lighting, home invasion, as well as marital dispute. The film also has an extremely dramatic soundtrack just like Riverdale.

As for the characters, there is no limit to the dangerous lies that they tell and they’re all too intense in a way that adds to the pulpy theme of the film. The pacing has the added effect of making it hard to look away from the film, as so much is revealed so quickly.

At the same time, it has so little grounding in previous parts of the plot that a poorly timed lapse in attention practically guarantees viewers will miss a vital piece of information. Dangerous Lies isn’t Oscar bait, but it absolutely delivers what its extremely straightforward title promises.

How to watch it

Dangerous Lies is available for stream and download in Netflix. However, it’s now a requirement by Netflix that the latest originals must be available to stream in 4K.

Hence, to watch Dangerous Lies in 4K you will need a 4K device, a premium Netflix subscription and an internet connection capable of 25Mbps.
