The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ More Lizzie Borden at Lifetime!

Honey Buzz ~ More Lizzie Borden at Lifetime!

With the exception of the inclusion of a modern music soundtrack (grumble), Lifetime's Lizzie Borden Took an Ax was actually great fun. And compared to some other Lizzie Borden-based films we've seen, it was basically Citizen Kane. But since the Christina Ricci-starring biopic pulled decent ratings and found an even bigger second life onDemand, Lizzie will be hatcheting her way back to the small screen in 2015!

In a limited series event, titled Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles, Lifetime will offer a fictionalized account of Borden's life following her infamous murder trial in 1892. When people around Lizzie begin dying inexplicably (or not so inexplicably, given they are hanging out with Lizzie Borden), a Pinkerton detective becomes obsessed with proving Borden's involvement in the deaths. Cole Hauser will join the cast as the detective, while Ricci will return as Lizzie.

The Fall River Chronicles will air in six, one-hour installments beginning some time in 2015. According to Lifetime EVP Rob Sharenow:
“For more than a century, the world has been captivated by the legend of Lizzie Borden. But no one has captured her enigmatic menace as well as Christina Ricci. This series will take viewers further down Lizzie Borden’s dark path, revealing what many people suspected about her mysterious life.”

Will you be tuning in for this Lifetime series? Normally, I'd say no but... Christina Ricci.
