DO YOU HAVE “SINISTIQUE?”
Different people appeal for different reasons. It may be their warmth, their look or their air of reliability that attracts others. But in a few rare cases, it’s something darker; an air of danger or doom which entices instead of repelling—their “sinistique.”
In December's all-new “Midnight Hour” episode, a young man named Darryl finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, unintentionally witnessing resident bully, Billy Fletcher, making out with colleague, Sheila. Darryl is caught and Billy is enraged...but no one knows how much so until Billy nearly kills Darryl in an “accident.”
Alive but now burdened with a weakened artery in his brain, Darryl eventually returns to work, a changed man. He has learned a dark family secret about himself and has become the object of Sheila’s sympathy and affection. Meanwhile, Darryl’s various tormenters are beginning to die, one by one...by artificially induced brain hemorrhages.
A local police detective finds the circumstances of their deaths odd and immediately suspects Darryl. But as Sheila confirms, Darryl always has an unshakable alibi at the time of the murders. If he’s not avenging himself, who is killing on his behalf?
The puzzle builds to a memorable climax in this entry, which boasts marvelous cinematography, editing and locations. Look for standout performances from series newcomers Eric Moyer, Alan Canning and Mia Shagena (of TLC’s “Police Women of Dallas” reality series).
This “Midnight Hour” entry features the series’ trademark adult themes, suspense and twist ending, making it a solid bet for late-night viewing after the kids are in bed.
“Sinistique” airs Thursdays and Saturdays throughout December, 2014. Check the Episode Guide for channels & times or watch it in HD below.
