Storyline

Newlywed Laurie Wade finds her marriage, and eventually the rest of her life, shattered by her deep-rooted psychotic behavior. She goes from brief "short-circuits" to overtly murderous behavior. The film never tries to explain the cause of her mental collapse (except for a hint or two) but instead takes us into her frightening state of mind. Written by Jonathan A. Cullum

Trivia

Laurie Dann's only fatality during her shooting spree was 8-year old Nicky Crowin. After his death, the school sent home his papers and drawings. Included was a short story that Nicky had written. It was the story of a dog that was shooting people. The dog's name was "Dirty Dan" and the victim's name was "Mickey". Nicky also drew a picture of his mother with a bubble coming out of her mouth. In the bubble was the question "where is my son?" See more »

Murder of Inocence
11 February 2007 | by nova1942See all my reviews

I just watched this movie and was amazed at how well Valerie Bertinelli did in this serious portrayal. She was marvelous!

As for the reasoning behind the girl's illness, I got the feeling it was something from her childhood. Perhaps inherited from her mother, who seemed to have a deep seeded strangeness to her!

What I was upset with and confused about, was that nothing came about after her father was taken to her apartment and saw what condition it was in. It was definitely the work of someone who was quite unstable and possible dangerous! If that place wasn't a red flag for help I don't know what was!!
