The Stepchild – Review

The Stepchild – LMN – 2 hours 2 minutes

The Step Child

Ashley has spent sometime in a mental hospital because she was unresponsive after finding her father’s dead body. The police believe Ashley’s father interrupted a home invasion and was killed. However, Ashley is feeling better and her therapist gives her the “OK” to go home. With both biological parents dead, Ashley tries to adjust to life at home, but her dreams and memories make her uneasy. Ashley is worried that her father’s business partner, John, is less than honest with shady business dealings, angry outburst, and a suspicious past. Ashley tries to warn her stepmother, Beth, and boyfriend, Mike, that John killed her father. Beth, John, and Ashley’s therapist believe that stress and post traumatic stress disorder has triggered her genetic predisposition for paranoid schizophrenia. Soon Ashley is back in the hospital trying to convince everyone that she is not crazy. Only time will tell.

LMN gives a familiar story with a different but Lifetime twist. LMN fans have come to learn that the obvious answer is 100% wrong. This movie is a slow build with a quick paced ending. The 1st hour can be skipped without missing the full jest of the movie. This is a good movie to DVR or have in the background while you are accomplishing another task. Its not a must see, but a good-to-see movie.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars

Guilty. I feel guilty when it breaks – Ashley

Don’t sit there. That’s my dad’s chair – Ashley
