| Killer Body: not your typical Lifetime Movie!
Killer Body is a slow-burn thriller with a more complex and nuanced approach to character development than your typical Lifetime Movie. Lindsay Maxwell, who plays the villainess Elizabeth Oakley, steals the show as a jealous and deeply troubled former medical school classmate of plastic surgeon, Dr. Katie Jones (played by Sunny Mabrey). Maxwell brings a depth to her performance that is both highly relatable and tragic. As Elizabeth becomes increasingly unhinged, the cracks in her outward confidence reveal a vulnerable and damaged individual. In this regard, the movie appears to play homage to the early '90s film Single White Female. Conversely, Sunny Mabrey's more subdued performance acts as a necessary counterbalance to Maxwell's and helps create a vivid contrast between hero and villain.

While the story itself conforms to the standard Lifetime stalker genre, the movie's focus on psychological character development and Maxwell's exceptional performance make this a must see for Lifetime Movie fans. 8 out of 10 stars.
