REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..though it loses its way toward the end, a stylish rehashing of the facts -- along with healthy speculation -- make this account of the gruesome 1892 unsolved murders a worthwhile diversion..”
by Allison Keene [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 5

“..Ricci makes a compelling and creepy Lizzie. She doesn't look like the real-life Lizzie, who was chunky and fair, but she certainly makes a believable murderess, and she's a lot of fun to watch..”
by Joyce Slaton [Common Sense Media]
Review rate : A-

ANOTHER ME :
