Got it from another site. The American Idol version of the Lizzie Borden song was a little much.

I mean, it's a thirty second tease. I can't glean much except that Ricci looks great in the role and it seems they're trying to make the indignity of the "real" killer as ambiguous as possible.

Which isn't to say I haven't watched it half a dozen times already.

It'll be horrible. I'll happily watch all of it, though, just to see Ricci in her nightgown.

I'm tempering expectations, but I'm also pretty jazzed.

Without getting into spoilers, I enjoyed it immensely. It's tawdry in the way a lot of Lifetime movie are, but one should have an idea of what one is watching. While much liberty is taken with social mores, specifically Lizzie's outwardly rebellious nature, I was shocked by how much they stuck to the accepted facts. When they did alter something for dramatic license, it was usually just to simplify rather than dramatize. (There's one glaring exception, but I let that pass too.)

This might be a spoiler if you've never heard of Lizzie Borden, but the movie's biggest weakness is
Spoiler
never even trying to convince you otherwise that Lizzie did it. A lot could be made of trying to spin out a few of the non-Lizzie theories.

It's good, and the reveal/moment at the end should have been sullied by all the flash cuts to it they peppered throughout the movie, but it was still creepy cool.

I liked it, but I'm obsessed.

It was awful.

But...


Quote
Lifetime has decided to turn its original movie Lizzie Borden Took An Ax into an original series starring Christina Ricci, prompting a collective, gleeful cry of “Tina! Bring me the ax!” from middle-aged gay men and your author alike. Having sadly rejected the alternate title Lizzie Borden 2: Still Choppin’, the six-part series will be called Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles and will focus on Borden’s celebrity life after being acquitted of the 1892 murder of her father and stepmother, as well as, presumably, her difficulty getting anyone to go to the Lumberjack Festival with her each autumn. Rogue’s Cole Hauser will co-star as Charlie Siringo, a detective who becomes suspicious when people close to Lizzie, including her half-brother, begin dying under mysterious and unnatural—although not necessarily ax-based—circumstances.
