‘A Murder to Remember’ is Lifetime’s latest addition to the “ripped from the headlines” roster. The thriller is based on Ann Rule’s true crime collection, titled ‘Empty Promises.’ We focus on a couple whose camping trip goes haywire, and a mysterious stranger only complicates matters. Javier and Robin go to celebrate their anniversary, but things go south when Javier turns up dead.

Left to fend for herself, in the wilderness, Robin does not quite know what to do. However, she accepts help from Sam, a mysterious camper. While Robin gradually starts placing her life in the hands of a stranger, the question arises whether Sam is there to protect her, or if Robin needs to be protected from him. The woods give an eerier feeling that captures the tense suspense. Naturally, you might be curious about where ‘A Murder to Remember’ has been filmed.
