Pretty good movie based on a true story
23 March 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie starring Elizabeth Montgomery as Blanche Taylor Moore, is based on a true story. A basically psycho woman, Blanche, kills all of her- what is it, four?- husbands with Antiants, which is most likely a solution to kill ants. I understand this was based on a true story, but was it REALLY necessary to include the part about her breast cancer? There were some things in here that were really just not necessary to include. It was pretty good, though, and a good performance by Liz Montgomery with her great southern drawl! See this one if you are a die-hard fan of someone who's in it, otherwise it's not really worth it to watch, but it's not really terrible either.
