The poster finds a winsome Ricci standing on a staircase, holding an ax splattered with blood. The “L” in Lizzie has been replaced with a hatchet.

The TV movie, premiering Jan. 25, takes viewers back to the day Lizzie (Ricci) claims to have discovered the bodies of her parents and sister (Clea DuVall ). Billy Campbell plays her attorney, Andrew Jennings.
