China Anne McClain stars in Ten: Murder Island.

This week’s new Lifetime movie will have you scared to go anywhere without an adult. Ten: Murder Island follows 10 teenagers who go to an island without any parents, only to find their perfect paradise shattered. The film debuts on Saturday, September 16 at 8:00 p.m.. Read on for a preview and to meet the cast.

Ten: Murder Island is not based on a true story, but it is based on a novel. Gretchen McNeil’s Ten was published in September 2013 and centers on 10 teenagers who are invited to an exclusive house party on an island without parents. Meg (China Anne McClain) and her best friend Minnie (Cassidy Gifford) decide to go even though Meg doesn’t think it’s a good idea.

All of Meg’s instincts prove correct though, as each teen has a connection to Meg. They also start dying off one by one and Meg has to figure out what those connections are before it’s too late.

Ten was adapted by Chris Robert, who also directed the film. Before Ten, he was also a producer on The Big Wedding (2013), Lost In The Sun (2016) and Another You (2017). He also directed Another You.

Now, let’s meet the main cast of Ten: Murder Island.

Ten Murder Island????????
Scary….What?
The worst group of miserable, mean spirited, hateful, don’t belong together, young chip on their shoulder losers.
The screenplay is so poorly done starting with, why are these non friends going to this island to begin with and why is the x-couple spending so much time strollin about in the woods when people are being killed, and why not take the time to look for the keys to the boat to how in the hell did they see a boat house when one has to travel up and down treacherous (not really) hillsides to why not just get on the G. D. boat and use something to paddle with?
