Lifetime has set a Jan. 25 premiere date for Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, a biopic based on the notorious life of Lizzie Borden, the acquitted suspect in the 1892 hatchet murders of her parents Andrew and Abby Borden. The film is directed by Nick Gomez (”Flash Forward”) and stars Christina Ricci in the titular role.

Co-starring alongside Ricci are Billy Campbell (“Helix”) and Clea DuVal (Argo). The film marks Ricci’s return to horror since 2009’s After.Life, in which she toplessly played the victim of an automobile accident who wakes up in the morgue, but is told by the mortician that she is dead.

Ricci’s creds include a string of memorable frighteners and thrillers, including Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, Wes Craven’s Cursed, the sexy abduction drama Black Snake Moan and the biopic Monster, based on serial killer Aileen Wuornos and her lesbian lover.
