It’s basically Riverdale meets Clue! Dangerous Lies on Netflix is the streaming platform’s newest mystery and is channelling some major vibes from the popular 1980s movie. The Vancouver shot film, starring Riverdale’s Camila Mendes, has fans becoming detectives in order to uncover the mystery behind a suspicious murder.
The story follows Katie (Mendes) and husband Adam (Jessie Usher) who are a young couple struggling financially. After becoming caregivers to a wealthy old man named Leonard, he tragically dies, and the two are thrust into a murder investigation.
They’re marked as key suspects after it’s revealed she was left as the sole recipient of Leonard's estate.
Like Clue, other characters get involved in the investigation including a suspicious police officer and curious real-estate agent.
Although it was just released, the film has already been getting the stamp of approval from fans. It currently has an 89% audience rating on Google and even Mendes’ friends are giving her all the praise on Instagram.
Announcing the release of her film, the Riverdale actress wrote, “come on down to @netflix at midnight PST and get yourself some #dangerouslies delivered straight to your eyeballs 👁👁 includes me, @jessietusher, a big ole house, @sashaalexander, decaying body parts, @jamiejchung, lots of tea (literally but also figuratively).” She also included a photo from the film.
Celebs like Dawson’s Creek’s Sasha Alexander and The Politician’s Zoey Deutch both hyped up the film commenting, “Go Cami!!!!” and “😍😍😍.”
The cast spent a good few weeks in Vancouver filming the thriller last year and even shared their time on set with their Instagram followers.
Spending time on Canada’s west coast wasn’t new for Mendes. The 25-year-old frequents the city for a good part of the year while filming her hit show Riverdale.
You can catch Mendes in new episodes of Riverdale every Thursday on Netflix. While the series isn’t in production right now, the actress is expected to return to Vancouver in order to film the confirmed season 5.
Dangerous Lies is currently streaming on Netflix. You can check out the full trailer below.
