[adrotate banner=”7″]First of all, I question that a wife’s nightmare is her husband having a long-lost daughter showing up that turns out to be a murderous con artist, but perhaps that is a common phobia with housewives. Needless to say, A Wife’s Nightmare is Lifetime’s latest nightmare entry in domestic non-bliss entertainment. It’s like a turbo-powered Electra complex, and poor wife Jennifer Beals is being replaced by a mistress who is inside the house! Of course, it will probably end in women punching each other, something that happens quite often in Lifetime films.
Inspired by a true story. When a mysterious teenage girl shows up on their doorstep claiming to be her husband’s long lost daughter, Liz Michaels welcomes her into their home – but when Liz starts to feel pushed out of her own family, she begins to question the girl’s true motives and doubt her own sanity.
What that synopsis doesn’t mention is Liz just got back from having a mental breakdown, so everyone will call her crazy for the entire movie in addition to all the goofy stuff going on!
A Wife’s Nightmare stars Jennifer Beals, Spencer List, Katherine McNamara, Dylan Neal, and Lola Tash. It’s directed by Vic Sarin, who directed the prior Nightmare films A Mother’s Nightmare, A Sister’s Nightmare, and A Daughter’s Nightmare. You might say he’s the stuff Nightmares are made of! It’s written by Blake Corbet and Dan Trotta. Corbet has some production experience and Trotta seems to be a newcomer.
A Wife’s Nightmare premieres Saturday, December 27th on Lifetime!
