How to Capture another Fun & “Perfect” Mystery in ‘Exit, Stage Death’!

January 19, 2021 No Comments

Bringing back their married co-stars, Hallmark take fans back into a new mystery in this third Picture Perfect Mysteries title.

Picture Perfect Mysteries: Exit, Stage Death (2020) Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Review

Her latest job takes photographer Allie Adams (Alexa PenaVega) backstage as the photographer of a local play. A play Allie is also supporting because her best friend is a part of the cast. Things seem to be going well with expectation of the leading lady running late, everything looks to go off. Only, later Allie then finds the leading lady dead in the costume room.

This brings the local police to the play including Detective Sam Acosta (Carlos PenaVega). A newer resident and friend of Allie’s, Sam is always curious as to how Allie just happens to always be at crime scenes. This time, he learns Allie is a witness to who may be the murderer, which soon puts her life in potential danger!

There are quite a few Hallmark Movies & Mysteries series at this point, and so far, they seem to continue to grow with more rumored to be in development stages. This Picture Perfect Mysteries franchise is one of its newer ones, but what makes them unique is the fact that it features married co-stars. Of course, the mystery of the plot is also a fun thing to try and puzzle out!

Of the films I’ve seen Alexa and Carlos in, I think these characters suit them best. They seem most at “ease” together in this franchise (which sounds odd to say). I also appreciate that the writers are building (so far) more of a friendship than a would-be romance between Allie and Sam. It’s a solid base for them to (perhaps) become more in the future, and it’s one that’s being handled well, whether this is because of the actors or writing, or a combination of both.

If you’ve liked the prior movies in this franchise, like anything from the ‘Movies & Mysteries’ banner, you’ll find this one fun. The mystery is reminiscent of another from Hallmark, but the characters are fun and quiet though it is, I quite like how this one ends; it’s a nice tie in to a thread throughout the film. In the end, ‘Exit, Stage Death’ is fun if you’re into mysteries.
