Day 271

movie: Perfect Child
starring: Rebecca Budig, Lochlyn Munro
genre: Thriller
year: 2007
format: TV EDIT

plot: A new bride finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery when her new step daughter's actions keeps causing a string of deadly accidents

This is a made for tv movie

There isn't anything new about this story.  There is a young couple, a strange little girl, an ex girlfriend who may or may not be the murderer, and a string of bad stuff in their pasts. 
Very formulaic.  

The star of this is soap actress Budig. Her sense of paranoia is pitch on, giving moments of down time the tension it needs to keep the story focused  

The part of the step daughter is played by the actress who did The Tooth Fairy a straight to video horror from 2006 along with Munro as well. (not to be confused with the Disney movie The Tooth Fairy starring the Rock... which she also had a small role in)

what do i think i learned from this film?
I have to say, I didn't really learn much from this film.  It was just too much of a been there seen it  story.
