The Stepchild :- Watch The Stepchild on YoutubeonFire, Last night Lifetime aired The Stepchild, a movie which tried its damnedest to throw us off the scent of who the real killer was. And I have to say it did a pretty good job. I mean, I knew it was happening, but I sure as hell didn’t guess the truth, at least not in exactly the WTF way it revealed itself. The movie opens on a creepy dream involving the main character Ashley (Sarah Fisher) dropping her snow globe as a child and seeing blood on her hands. The snow globe plays “Hush Little Baby,” just to up the creep factor. We learn that Ashley is in a psych ward after suffering a nervous breakdown over her father’s murder. She can’t remember the details of what happened that day, but she feels guilty that she couldn’t save him, which leads the audience (or at least me) to wonder if maybe she was the one who did it. Uh oh, where’d that scent go? Ashley’s therapist sends her home to live with her stepmother Beth (Lauren Holly) and her dad’s business partner John (Paul Johansson), who has been staying at the house. Immediately I was like, “These two were totally having an affair, and they killed the dad so they could be together!” But as soon as John showed up and Ashley actually started to suspect him, I threw that theory out the window. The movie really tries hard to set John up as the bad guy, which made me more and more certain he wasn’t.
