I never thought the day would come where I would be talking about a Lifetime movie here. Well today is the day. Lizzie Borden Took An Ax has just received a short trailer for the movie that will air on January 25, 2014, at 8pm ET/PT.
So what should we expect? I’m not entirely sure to be honest. My interest piqued when I found out Christina Ricci stars as the titular character so I’m paying attention. Check it out below.
Synopsis: The nursery rhyme “Lizzie Borden took an ax…and gave her mother forty whacks…when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one” has been folklore for generations. But, in fact, it was Lizzie Borden — one of the most legendary figures in American history — who first whetted the public’s voracious interest in scandalous crimes in the 1800s with her own gruesome story involving the brutal murder of her parents.
