The first movie we selected to watch was A Killing in a Small Town that was filmed in 1990. This movie was based on a woman that was axed to death in a small town called Wylie, Texas in 1980. (SN- I used to live 20 or so minutes from Wylie) The movie details the trial of Candy Montgomery, played by Barbara Hershey, who is later put under hypnosis and reveals another personality. The outcome of the trial will probably surprise you.
This movie starts out slow but grabs your attention because you can't turn the movie off until you find out who committed the crime, how they committed the crime and why. What I love about this movie is that they do a great job with the costumes and scenery, hence Barbara Hershey's tight perm and big glasses. One negative about this movie is that the lighting is dark so it can be hard to focus in on, but it was made before HD was invented.
What are some made for TV classics you would like to see aired or what did you think about this movie? Leave a comment..
