10 Accidental Lifetime Movies

This weekend marks the release of a thriller that played at Tribeca Film Festival last year, about a deranged babysitter who terrorizes the children of an unsuspecting family. The plot of Emelie sounds like a Lifetime-esque movie at its best — the network known for its sensational stories and over-the-top acting. We looked back at other “accidental” Lifetime movies — erotic thrillers, cheesy dramas, and hysterical stories (some better than others) that capture the made-for-TV essence.
