I'd give this series 40 whacks
7 April 2015 | by s3276169See all my reviews

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles has little to offer.

The characterizations are flat and lifeless. Lizzie is not portrayed as someone effected by emotional or other issues that may have made her a killer. Instead, what we get is a shallow depiction, that paints Borden as little more than a superficially charming, stereotypical, sociopath.

What really drags this series down, however, is the glee it takes in grotesque, sensationalist violence. The opening episode revels in blood and gore, with a cheesy, rocking soundtrack thrown in to further cheapen the whole miserable experience this shabby series represents.

Just as aggravating is the annoyingly choppy camera work, that I'm guessing is supposed to represent a chaotic, disordered mind. A more subtle approach would have achieved far more.

I'd like to give the script for Lizzie Borden forty whacks but a rating of one out of ten will have to suffice instead.
