Channels like Lifetime has always ensured to maintain the balance of entertainment in their viewer's life. Earlier, the channel brought a slate of romantic Christmas movies and now a deadly resolution packed with thriller and mysterious movies. 

'Killer Stepmom' sees Brianna (Julia Terranova) as a high school girl with a reputation for telling lies and creating trouble. Brianna was very much distracted after her father, Daniel (Jon Briddell), and mother Annie (Alison Robertson) made a mutual divorce decision. Brianna was not happy with their decision, and her father's remarriage to Susanna (Jillian Murray). Brianna could not score good grades because of the current situation with her family. She started living with her father when she discovered some suspicious activities of her stepmom. After following her stepmom, she found her murdering Randy McNabb (D C Douglas) in the parking lot.

Brianna tried to tell everyone about her reality, but no one was ready to believe her because of her earlier lies. On the other hand, Susanna was aware of the fact that Brianna knew about her deeds, but she took it as an advantage and proved to everyone that Brianna didn't like her stepmom. Although Annie was also not ready to believe Brianna but got suspicious and started investigating Susanna's past. 

 Annie even went to jail to meet Roxanne (Lisa Long), who hired Randy McNabb to keep an eye on Susanna. As Annie and Brianna were getting close to the truth, Brianna's stepmom decided to kill them as well. She tried to give drugs to Annie and that resulted in Annie's car accident. Fortunately, she was safe, but Susanna hired a killer for Annie. However, the killer failed on his mission, and Susanna herself texted Brianna from Daniel's phone. Brianna went to meet her father. Little she didn't know that it was all planned by her stepmom.

Annie discovered that Susanna was taking revenge as she lost her family and thought that Daniel was the one behind her loss. So, she wanted to do the same with him and his family. The movie could have been a simple watch had Susanna not been portrayed as a serial killer with a dramatic past. Richard Switzer has excellently directed 'killer Stepmom'. The scenes are perfectly brought into the play because of the creative writing of Richard Switzer and Daniel West.
