Lifetime's Lizzie Borden Movie Looks Deliciously Bad in First Trailer

Here's the first teaser for Lifetime's Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, starring your favorite actress (correction: your favorite actress who starred in Casper), Christina Ricci. The trailer, which is mostly a lot of fast cuts, axe thudding sounds and shots of Ricci's beautiful, giant doll eyes as they widen in horror, looks exactly how a Lifetime movie about Lizzie Borden should look — overwrought and delightfully cheesy.


Fair warning — watching the trailer may send you into a gruesome and strange Lizzie Borden Google K-hole where you will read a lot of conspiracy theories and somehow find yourself considering a stay in the DEFINITELY haunted Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast. Has anyone here been? How is the breakfast part of the deal?

LOVE IT! I have actually been down the Lizzie Borden Internet dark hole before, and it's a really strange/interesting case. Some law school did a re-trial of the case a few years ago, using evidence/testimony from the original trial, and still found her not guilty. But it seemed more of a "lack of evidence" thing than a slam dunk "she didn't do it!"
