Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one. This childhood rhyme was based off a real-life murder that was turned into a great movie, The Legend of Lizzie Borden. So great that when one fan, James Cushing, finds an axe, he thinks it is destiny to follow Elizabeth Montgomery’s portrayal and become Lizzie. Walking the streets of a Seattle suburb at night, no one is safe as he searches for the perfect victim. Show Less
