Dressed to Kill in High School
8 September 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

After the funeral of her boyfriend, sexy 17-year-old Jessica Lowndes (as Vanessa Lynn Redlann) is moved to another foster home. She enrolls in "Fairview Heights High School" and decides to seduce cute track athlete Grant Gustin (as Christopher "Chris" Stewart). Depressed about his parents' separation and recent break-up with his cheerleader girlfriend, Mr. Gustin is an easy conquest. He skips classes and practice to be with Ms. Lowndes. Gustin's mother Annabeth Gish (as Madeleine "Maddie" Stewart) is concerned about her young son's behavior. Investigating the situation, Ms. Gish makes some startling discoveries...

"A Mother's Nightmare" is the first part of a series of "Nightmare" movies from director/cinematographer Vic Sarin and writer Shelley Gillen. The stories are unrelated. This Lifetime TV Movie was "Inspired by True Events," according to the opening. If the character really exists, hopefully someone will see this on television and contact authorities because the ending suggests an additional incident may be imminent. Lowndes and Gustin are old for the roles, but pull them off. Her maturity makes seduction more believable. He has a cool hairstyle and cornered eyebrows. Gish should have been given a stronger confidante or lover.

***** A Mother's Nightmare (9/29/12) Vic Sarin ~ Jessica Lowndes, Grant Gustin, Annabeth Gish, Sebastian Spence
