'Secret Obsession': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and everything else about the Netflix thriller 

Brenda Song's upcoming movie is quite unlike her Disney projects – it is a dark take on relationships and love. In the first trailer released for Netflix's psychological 'Secret Obsession', Song stars as a newlywed, Jennifer, who is in a life-threatening situation supposedly with the one she is in love with. The story progresses as she wakes up following a vicious attack unable to remember her past. 

Release date

The Brenda Song movie will be coming to Netflix on July 18, 2019.


According to the official synopsis, 'Secret Obsession' follows newlywed Jennifer (Brenda Song) after she brutally attacked at a dark rest stop. While healing from her injuries, she can’t recall anything from her past, including the ordeal. Her husband, Russell (Mike Vogel), is just thankful she’s alive and eager to get her home. As he reintroduces her to their secluded mountain estate, Detective Page (Dennis Haysbert) pursues Jennifer’s assailant — his own daughter went missing and was never found. The same fate now awaits Jennifer, unless someone realizes that her loving caretaker is actually her captor.

You most definitely know Brenda Song from Disney. She is best known for her portrayal of London Tipton in 'The Suite Life of Zack & Cody' and 'The Suite Life on Deck'. Tipton's character is noted as one of the Disney Channel's longest continuous characters.

Vogel is best known for his work on 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants', 'Grind', 'Poseidon', 'Blue Valentine', 'The Help', 'Bates Motel', 'Cloverfield', 'Under the Dome' and 'The Case for Christ'.



'Secret Obsession' is directed by Peter Sullivan, who is known for his work such as 'Secret Society', 'Killer Mountain', 'The Perfect Student', 'A Christmas Proposal', 'Termination Point', and 'Blind Injustice' among others.


You can watch the trailer for the movie here:



The first trailer for Netflix's 'Secret Obsession' follows the story of Brenda Song's Jennifer, a newlywed who, after a brutal attack at a rest stop, cannot seem to recall who she is or anything about her past. She is picked up at the hospital by her husband Russell (played by Mike Vogel), but we soon see that not everything is what it looks like. 

Turns out, Russell is not who he claims to be and the duo has some sort of a one-sided history to them. What we don't understand is that Netflix has practically told the entire story in the trailer itself – there is very little left to the imagination and we don't know how we feel about thrillers like that. 


Where to watch

'Secret Obsession' will be available to stream on Netflix on July 18, 2019.
