Coming to Lifetime TV Saturday night. Check your local listings for the appropriate time and channel in your area.

Sypopsis courtesy of myLifetime.com: In this fresh take on Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Wrong Man,” Ellen Plainview (Danica McKellar, TV’s The Wonder Years), a sweet, caring, working wife and mother, answers the door one afternoon to learn that she is under arrest for attempted murder. She enters a legal nightmare as the evidence against her accumulates until it is overwhelming. Her friends and even her policeman husband begin to doubt her innocence, to the point where even she wonders if she somehow committed the violent horrible crime without remembering it, especially when it turns out that the victim was a young woman who was having an affair with her husband.

The film also stars Fred Dryer (TV’s Hunter), Jaleel White (TV’s Family Matters), Dina Meyer (TV’s Birds of Prey and Starship Troopers), Jennifer Blanc (TV’s Dark Angel), and our very own Claudia!

Flashback Friday: The Garden (2006) DVD

Summary courtesy of HorrorTalk.com:

Sam (Adam Taylor Gordon) has been having some messed-up dreams lately. Dreams involving trees and snakes and things of a Biblical nature. Plus, he cuts himself.

His concerned father, David (Brian Wimmer), takes him to a specialist (Claudia Christian), who tells him his son sees things differently than other people. Almost alluding that he has visions, but not quite admitting it.

On the way home from the appointment, Sam sees a man in the middle of the road and he grabs the wheel of the car from his father, forcing their truck off the road.

He awakens two days later in a house owned by the enigmatic Ben Zachary (Lance Henriksen). Due to a toxic spill at their home, Sam and David must stay at the ranch until the quarantine is lifted. Fortunately, though, Ben is an older gentlemen, and he has offered David a job on the ranch until they can leave—which David eagerly takes.

But Sam doesn’t like Ben. There’s something untrustworthy about him. And when Sam watches him butcher someone, that just seals it. This guy just might be evil.

Wait until Sam realizes he’s living with the Devil himself.

“The Garden” may also be known as “The River to Halivah” in some markets.  Along with Claudia, the film starred cult sci-fi and horror actor, Lance Henriksen (The Terminator, Aliens, Near Dark, Pumpkinhead, Aliens vs. Predator, The Quick and the Dead, No Escape, and TV’s Millennium and Beauty and the Beast), Brian Wimmer (TV’s China Beach and Flipper), and Sean Young (Blade Runner and No Way Out).

The DVD also has special features, including: Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1), enhanced for 16×9 TVs; Audio commentary with director Don Michael Paul; “The Garden: Behind the Scenes”; Theatrical trailer; Still Gallery; and Lance Henriksen bio.
