Elizabeth Montgomery stars as Lizzie Borden, a 19th-century Massachusetts woman, who is put on trial for the brutal slaughter of her father and step-mother in the family mansion. She is accused of hacking up her parents with an ax after carefully removing her clothes to avoid bloodstains. Based on fact and considered shocking at the time for a TV-movie. Written by
In 1976, Elizabeth Montgomery told reporter Joan E. Vadeboncoeur about a letter she received after the film aired which left her perplexed. "One guy wrote a critique that went on for three pages. It was very articulate. I put it down and looked at the envelope and it was from a state institution. I'm wondering what he was in for. He didn't tell me." See more »

I remember I was 14 years old and babysitting some little kids and watching this movie all by myself (I had wisely put the little ones to bed). I remember walking home in the dark after watching this movie and running because I was so scared after watching this movie. Elizabeth Montgomery, whom I loved as Samantha the loving witch on "Bewitched" is wonderful in the role of the weird Lizzie Borden. Did she really kill her folks? The movie lets the watcher decide for themselves, but the acting, writing and directing were all top notch, especially for a TV movie. Wish it would come out on DVD, I would love to see it again after all these years.
