[adrotate banner=”7″]I’ve loved creepy movies about returning long lost evil sons who may or may not be fake ever since I saw grown up Ricky Schroder return with anger issues in the made-for-tv movie The Stranger Within as a child. The Wrong Son continues that tradition with a returned from the dead son and lots of suspicious accidents. Plus it’s got Olivia d’Abo, so we can all pretend it is a sequel to The Wonder Years!
Thirteen years after disappearing and presumed drowned, Matt returns home to his mother Sarah. Suspicions grow when her older son Ian is injured in a car accident similar to the one that recently killed his father. Is this really Sarah’s missing son and is he seeking a loving home or revenge?
The Wrong Son stars Olivia d’Abo, Tammy Blanchard, Dan Amboyer, and Paloma Guzmán. It’s directed by Asylum-alum Nick Everhart and the story is by Shane O’Brien (a producer, this appears to be his first writing credit).
The Wrong Son premieres Sunday, June 17th on Lifetime!
