The new Lifetime Thriller movie, One Night Stand Murder, premiered on the channel on Sunday September 17, 2023. We at Survived The Shows had the pleasure of chatting with director Brittany Underwood about her experience in the making of One Night Stand Murder and what fans can expect from the movie. 

Can you tell us a bit about the storyline of “One Night Stand Murder”?

One Night Stand Murder is about a girl, Alyssa Morgan, who wakes up in a stranger’s bed and doesn’t remember how she got there, what happened that night. And as she’s going to say goodbye to this stranger, she realizes he is dead. So right away it starts off incredible inciting incident and racing thoughts.

How did this happen or did I do that? Who? You know, a million questions are racing through her head. And so she embarks on this journey to find out what happened that night, not only to prove her innocence, but to prove what happened. And obviously, it’s a hard thing to prove your innocence when you don’t even remember how you got there, what happened? And I think there’s a little part of her that wonders if she could have done something like that. She obviously knows she normally wouldn’t, but what were the circumstances? Was he trying to hurt her? And it was selfdefense.

She doesn’t remember. So that’s terrifying in and of itself. And she starts playing detective and trying to put all the pieces together and meets the detective along the way who he’s obviously trying to find out what happens as well. So is he going to be friend or foe? Is he going to believe her when she says I didn’t do this? So it’s a really interesting journey and I thought it made for a wild ride.

What initially attracted you to the story in “One Night Stand Murder”?

What really attracted me to this story right off the bat was how quickly we just take off. You know, the movie starts with her waking up in bed and finding out that he’s dead. So right away it’s like, boom, OK, now what? And it’s like, it’s just like this train that keeps on moving throughout the whole story, which was exciting.

It wasn’t necessarily like a slow burn. And then we get to this dramatic moment. It really kind of takes you on this ride from the get, which was exciting to me. When I read it, I thought it played very well. And yeah, I love a good, exciting journey. The mystery, the clues, the detective work, all of that was thrilling for me. So I loved going on this journey with Alyssa.
