Curse of Lizzie Borden 2: Prom Night (2008)

For the past five years, Cassie has been in an institution.  She was committed after being diagnosed with a split personality.  But her psychiatrist isn't very good since he can't figure out when she's turned into Lizzie.

When he turns his back on her to speak to a tape recorder to provide exposition, you know it's not going to end well.  Oh yeah, she kills him.

Cassie sleeps with a real estate agent at a home for sale, which just happens to be the same house from the first movie where the Lizzie Borden museum was located and Cassie killed everyone.  So why would Cassie go there? She wouldn't want to be at the scene of the murders.  But if she's still possessed by Lizzie, then why is she sleeping with the agent and jogging?  Lizzie is a 19th century prude.

While jogging, Cassie is almost run over by a female professor who just happens to be teaching a college class on American Folklore, which coincidentally just happens to be currently studying Lizzie Bordon. What are the odds?  This college must be the king of Lizzie Borden studies.

The professor decides it would be a great idea to go to the murder house since it ties in with their studies.  Six students from the class show up because they can get extra credit.  The professor  organized this field trip even though it's at the end of the semester and grades have already been submitted. So.... she already gave them the extra credit?

The professor has lived in town all her life, but had no idea that five years ago in this very house a mass murder of college students by a woman claiming to be Lizzie had taken place.  Honestly, that would be news in any town, especially with the murders occurring at a museum for the same infamous ax murderer.

Basically, the movie can be summed up the same way as the first one: I'm Lizzie and I'm innocent of the murders I've been accused of, and to prove it I'm going to kill everyone with an ax.

Lizzie's brilliant disguise enables her to walk right

sign, he may not be the brightest bulb

The shovel looks normal....
.. ummm something looks a little off here...
..... oh good lord, that's just ridiculous. Did you even
have an editor? 
Yeah.... this is not good.
The amazing bending axe! Shot 1 - straight
handle. Shot 2 - rubber bendy handle.
