‘Missionary’ is the Romantic Mormon Thriller on Netflix We’ve All Been Waiting For… Wait, huh?

As I do every day, I posted the new titles on Netflix, one of those that caught my eye was a thriller on Netflix called Missionary. It basically takes the idea of Boy Next Door and replaces the schoolboy crush aspect with something much sexier…. Mormons. Two elders come upon a single mother and her son playing football in the front yard, as most single mothers do.

The mother becomes romantically entangled with one of them and when the boys father comes back in the picture, the Mormon boy realizes his big ol’ glass of poon juice just ran dry and he gets incredibly jealous… and just one day before her baptism! Take a look at the trailer and then we’ll discuss the ups and downs.

UP Nothings scarier than the sight of two Mormons approaching your house. I always hear a big CA-CHUNG whenever someone mentions Christ around me.

DOWN I think she picked the wrong Mormon, sure he’s handsome… but judging by the other man’s glasses, he has decent health insurance.

UP Things look like they’re heating up. If there’s anything Mormons seem to hate more than someone questioning their religion, it’s change.

UP This Mormon is PISSED! With shots that remind you of The Shinning and The Good Son, we’re looking at something that has done its homework.

Overall, the film has a well cut trailer and even though the premise is a bit over done, that doesn’t mean that they didn’t do it right.

    This looks it’d be a lot of fun to watch with a group of ex-Mormons, a la “Mystery Science Theater 3000”.

      That might be a commentary that I make happen. That’s an awesome idea!
