Christina Ricci has played a wide array of characters over the years, but her most recent project is about a subject that has aroused curiosity for over a century, and a new poster for the film has taken the web by storm.

“Lizzie Borden Took An Ax”, an upcoming Lifetime movie, tells the story of the young woman accused of murdering her family in their home in 1892 and the trial that gripped the nation at the time. The network sent out a press release this week, saying, “On a scorching, hot summer day in 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts, Lizzie Borden (Ricci) returns home to the house she shares with her father Andrew, stepmother Abby and sister Emma (DuVall). But, unlike any normal day, Lizzie encounters the bloody scene of her parents violently murdered. Police quickly question multiple suspects in town, but evidence keeps pointing back to the Borden’s youngest daughter Lizzie, the seemingly wholesome Sunday school teacher, as the prime suspect. Lizzie’s lawyer, Andrew Jennings (Campbell), proclaims her innocence arguing that it is inconceivable a woman could commit the heinous crime of brutally murdering her family with an ax. Or is it? Lizzie is put on trial for the murders, both in the courtroom and in the press, sparking a widespread debate about her culpability. As the case rages on, the courtroom proceedings fuel an enormous amount of sensationalized stories and headlines in newspapers throughout the country, forever leaving Lizzie Borden’s name in infamy.”

The film debuts on January 25.

    I could be her foot fetish slave for life. I could lick the sweat from in between her toes at her command. Then I could lay flat on my back on the carpet next to a wall while she walks barefoot full weight on my tummy for as long as she wants.
