Look out, Lifetime: It looks like Netflix is getting in on the “creepy relationship movie” game.
The trailer opens on Song’s character, Jennifer, waking up in the hospital, unsure of how she got there. Her husband, Russell (Vogel), says she was injured in an accident that left her with some major memory loss—she has no recollection of her modern life, including who her husband is. So she takes Russell’s word at face value.
But something definitely feels off as Russell takes Jennifer home to a gorgeous home in the mountains where he says the nearest neighbor is a mile away. A detective (Dennis Haysbert) starts digging into the case and quickly discovers that this Russell isn’t actually Russell at all. “The audience actually finds out the twist before my character does. I think the thrilling part of the movie is trying help Jennifer catch up,” Song told Refinery29.

Secret Obsession is a departure from Netflix’s recent run of rom-coms like To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Kissing Booth, and The Perfect Date—but we’re here for it. “I think people (me included) just love scaring themselves,” Song also told Refinery29. “Obviously having a stalker is no joking matter, but stalker movies are just so fascinating and terrifying.”
Song tweeted last month about the movie, “Sooo excited I can finally tell you guys that Secret Obsession is premiering in @Netflix on July 18th! Here’s a quick sypnopsis: Recuperating from trauma, Jennifer (Me) remains in danger as she returns to a life she doesn’t remember. Excited for you guys to see it!”
July 18 is only about a week away, people. Get ready.
