This weekend’s new Lifetime movie is the thriller Psycho Wedding Crasher, starring Glee actress Heather Morris as Jenna, a woman desperate to have her own wedding to escape the clutches of her abusive aunt. Will she find the right man and see her dreams come true? We’ll have to watch the movie to find out. It debuts on Sunday, September 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Read on for a preview of the movie and to meet the cast.
It turns out that the titular Psycho Wedding Crasher isn’t the abusive aunt, but Jenna! She’s spent her whole live watching Aunt Daisy (Joan Van Ark) make wedding dresses for other people’s weddings. Jenna knows that getting married would be her way of escaping Daisy, so she’s really happy when she meets the man of her dreams – Glenn (Jason Cermak). However, Glenn is about to get married to Marci (Fiona Vroom)! Rather than just move on and try to find another man, Jenna decides she has to marry Glenn, even if she has to kill Marci to do it.
The film is not advertised as “based on a true story.” It was written by Dick Bruna and Manny Dearest writer Bryan Dick, from a story by Lifetime movie veterans Ken Sanders and Daniel West. Director David Langlois also helmed The Hot Karl (2001) and Shattered Souls (2002).
