Editorial Reviews

BLUE-EYED BUTCHER is the shocking true story of a wife and mother driven to kill by her abusive husband, starring Sara Paxton (The Innkeepers), Justin Bruening (TV’s “Ringer”) and Lisa Edelstein (TV’s “The Good Wife”). Susan (Paxton) met handsome salesman Jeff (Bruening) on vacation and their storybook romance quickly led to marriage and a family. But Jeff’s drug use, immaturity and explosive temper led to violent episodes with Susan and their kids. Pushed to the very edge, she tied up her husband and stabbed him in their bed. Was she a battered prisoner of her suburban home or as the tough-as-nails prosecutor (Edelstein) argued, a calculating, cold-blooded murderer?

I can, and have been, critical of Lifetime made-for-TV movies for ripping "based on actual events" cases from the headlines and turning them into rather lurid fodder for fictionalized dramatic recreations. It is one of their go-to genres. Sometimes you don't need all the media hype and sensational coverage to deliver a compelling true life story. But that subtlety is generally lost in the translation. With the title "Blue-Eyed Butcher," the network announces that it isn't taking the restrained approach with this story of a Houston marriage gone wrong. But really, the case played out very publicly and even became a crusade for Nancy Grace (not exactly known for her demure opinions) so maybe subtlety was already off the table! If you've ever seen one of these interpretations before, "Blue-Eyed Butcher" does not veer from the expected formula. Indeed, you know exactly where you are headed from the very first scene. Despite this lack of imagination, however, I must admit that I found the movie better than expected (if not exactly a revelation).

Based on a 1993 case, a Texas man was strapped to his bed, stabbed repeatedly (at last count, we settled on 193 times) and buried in his backyard. His wife, as you might expect, was the primary culprit facing intense media scrutiny and legal proceedings (including a pretty horrific courtroom recreation which seems unbelievable but actually happened). Although this is all public record and not really a spoiler as the movie presupposes you know the details of the case, I will refrain from divulging anything more about the specifics. "Blue-Eyed Butcher" is split into two halves--basically before and after the murder. Sara Paxton and Justin Bruening play the ill fated couple. Neither is painted as a saint, but still appear surprisingly likable.

The movie was very good. It has a lot of bloody scenes in the movie, that didn't bother me but it might to others.

Blue-Eyed Butcher, 2012 film

The story begins with a trial. Susan Wright murdered her husband rather than divorce him. [Divorce could mean a 50-50 split of assets, a death meant the widow got all.] People on the beach play volley-ball. Susan meets Jeffrey Wright. She was studying to become a nurse; she worked as an exotic dancer for a few months. They date. Susan goes to Jeff's place. Did she trap him? They marry. Did this change Jeff for the better? In court Susan tells how she stabbed him. The testimony brings out more details about their lives: marriage, the birth of a son. But Jeff forgets to come home after work. What is happening to them? Susan talks about their sex life. She decides to go back to school - at night. Jeff dislikes this decision. Was she beaten by Jeff? No doctor visit? Jeff works out at a gym.

There is a separation, then they come together. Jeff threatens Susan. There is a second child. Susan keeps a clean home. Then Susan finds unpaid bills. Her credit card is declined at a store. Susan cooks a meal, Jeff rejects this. Is it an illusion to believe that beauty is goodness? The crime is recreated in court. The Medical Examiner testifies in court, stabbed 193 times, a painful death. Then the body was dragged outside and put into a hole. Susan claimed Jeff left her . She tries to clean up the bloodstains (after they dried) and dump the bloody mattress. Did she remember the details? She explains Jeff's absence" "he left". Her lawyer takes her to a psychiatrist to tell her story. The police dig up the body and gather the evidence. Susan is charge with murder. Later she holds a yard sale! Jeff had a big life insurance policy. Will she testify in court? The jury comes to a decision: guilty, given 25 years. Will she get a new trial?
