Psychological thrillers like "Fatal Attraction" and "Unfaithful" are the inspiration behind this true-crime series, which tells stories about relationships that quickly spiral into living nightmares. Each hourlong episode is a mini horror/suspense film that depicts actual events -- seemingly innocent encounters that end up changing the course of the participants' lives forever. Viewers see the evolution of each relationship and the escalation of extreme behavior, from a refusal to let go to a web of lies and betrayals, dangerous obsessions, scandalous affairs, stalking, and almost always murder.
