Directed by Craig William Macneill
Headstrong Lizzie Borden lives with her wealthy father, stepmother, and sister in Fall River, Massachusetts. When her family hires live-in maid Bridget, an uneducated Irish immigrant, the two find kindred spirits in one another and tension builds in the Borden household. Based on the infamous 1892 axe murders by Lizzie Borden. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.
Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart star in this psychological thriller based on the infamous 1892 murders of the Borden family.
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Chloe Sevigny, Kim Dickens
I recommend you watch this with subtitles, as the dialogue is quiet. It was an interesting take on the Lizzie Borden story; definitely seemed like a believable situation. Still disturbing that murder would have to be the only escape (and boy, was it memorably gory in those short instances). Very good acting from all cast members. One of the few films in which I can stand Kristen Stewart.
Great mivie with a great cast
I thoroughly enjoyed this little flick. Excellent cast as well. I think the fascination with Lizzie Borden will never fade.
Great actors, story line was good. I expected something more gruesome or scary, but good.
