Psycho Escort 2020 * * * Stars

Psycho EscortDirector: Monika Lynn Wesley
Year: 2020
Rated NR
Rating: * * * Stars
Cast: Victoria Barabas, Nick Ballard, Donovan Patton

Dug this flick yet its title is a little too umbrella. Yeah I'm talking about Psycho Escort and it's my latest review.

"Psycho's" story reminiscent of say, The Wrong Stepmother starts like this: A widow named Diane (played by ultra sexy Victoria Barabas) hires a shady escort named Miles (played by the robotic-looking Nick Ballard). Diane is doing this because she isn't dating anyone and needs a fake date to keep up public appearances within her job. When Miles goes off the clock and pursues Diane even though she eventually doesn't feel the same way, Miles goes well, "psycho".

Psycho Escort': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need ...With a cast of I guess C-listers and production values that involve a couple of distant shots via sunny LA, Psycho Escort is indeed a Lifetime endeavor. The actors/actresses involved do their best to emote but the dialogue exchanges are of course, TV movie webbed.

Oh well. "Psycho" is well-plotted and unputdownable. Even if its characters are overly tolerant and/or incredibly credulous, it's still engrossing to see the creepy layers of stiff Miles slowly peeling off. And the female lead in Victoria Barabas, well she's super easy on the eyes anyway.

Almost veering into camp while its siren protagonist gets nearly brainwashed, Psycho Escort still sucks you in just like anything Lifetime Network would. Psycho Escort isn't as violent as you might think but that doesn't mean you're not fearful for any suburban denizen implied.

Where Was Psycho Escort Filmed? Lifetime Cast DetailsAll in all, if you want something to wake you up after being half-asleep during your 3 pm nap, then "Psycho" will get the job done. And if you want an ending that undoubtedly provides no safe conclusion, then Psycho Escort will provide your "psyche" with a few afterthoughts. "Psycho" may not be Academy Award material but it's entertaining as heck. Just "accompany" it. Rating: 3 stars.
