Lizzie — Official Trailer


added: Fri, Aug 3rd '18

Horror director Craig William Macneill, whose credits include 2015's hypnotic thriller "The Boy" and the first season of the SyFy anthology series "Channel Zero," is putting his spin on the grisly tale of Lizzie Borden, the infamous New England spinster who was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with a hatchet in 1892.

Chloe Sevigny (Boys Don't Cry, HBO's Big Love) portrays the notorious ax murderess in "Lizzie," an unsettling psychological thriller that is suggesting Borden had a secret affair with her father's mistreated housemaid (played by former "Twilight" starlet Kristen Stewart).

In addition to Sevigny and Stewart, the film also features Kim Dickens (TV's Fear The Walking Dead) as Lizzie's sister, Emma; Jamey Sheridan (Spotlight) as Lizzie's abusive father, Andrew; Fiona Shaw (TV's Killing Eve) as Lizzie's complicit stepmother, Abby, and Denis O'Hare (FX's American Horror Story) as Lizzie's sleazy uncle, John Morse.

Written by Bryce Kass, "Lizzie," which premiered at Sundance this year, will open in select theaters on September 14th. Watch the film's official trailer, above.

LIZZIE is a psychological thriller that reveals many layers of the strange and fragile Lizzie Borden, who stood accused of the infamous 1892 axe murder of her family in Fall River, Massachusetts. An unmarried woman of 32 and a social outcast, Lizzie (Chloe Sevigny) lives a claustrophobic life under her father's cold and domineering control. When Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart), a young maid, comes to work for the family, Lizzie finds a sympathetic, kindred spirit, and a secret intimacy soon blossoms into a wicked plan.
