Lizzie Borden took an ax and gave her mother forty whacks

After years of books, nursery rhymes, operas and movies, Lizzie Borden is finally getting the Lifetime treatment! The new made-for-TV flick stars Christina Ricci as a young woman who was tried, and later acquitted, for the 1892 murders of her father and stepmother.

Why the network waited until now to make this film is beyond us, but we're terribly excited. 

Lizzie Borden To An Ax premieres January 25, 2014.
