How do you turn these famous Axe murders into a bore ??
10 December 2018 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

I loved the take on this story with Elizabeth Montgomery many years ago. I also enjoyed the recent version with Christina Ricci. If you enjoyed either of those, I would recommend skipping this version. The idea of taking these grisly murders and adding a Lesbian Feminist twist might have seemed like a good idea, but in the end they somehow managed to make it bland and a bore. The performances are very good from all the major actors except by Kirsten Stewart, who spends the entire movie looking like she's going to vomit, she really is a one-note actress. Even with the good performances, there just isn't much to the script. Nothing stands out here, the cinematography, the direction, the dialogue, it's all washed out and dull. For long stretches I was struggling to stay awake. The movie seems much more concerned with turning this into some type of "impossible for the times" love affair and the story of Lizzie Borden is already fascinating. A lifeless, dead on arrival production.
