[ # ] Shock Docs: The Curse of Lizzie Borden details a different side of the story
September 10th, 2021 under DIscovery Networks/Discovery+

We have all heard the scary Lizzie Borden nursery rhyme. If you haven’t, it is “Lizzie Borden took an ax, And gave her mother forty whacks; When she saw what she had done, She gave her father forty-one.”

On August 4, 1892, Borden’s father and step-mom were brutally murdered, and she was accused of the crime. It was one of the biggest trials of the century. But, at the end of it, she was acquitted of the murders.

However, after 130 years, people still believe that she did it. It is something that has haunted her legacy. And some say it still haunts the house where it happened.

So much so, several paranormal investigators have investigated the house. In fact, it has been featured on many paranormal shows. I have to admit, I have seen a few of them. So I can tell you this special is not the same old, same old.

That is because Shock Docs: The Curse of Lizzie Borden, which is streaming on Discovery+ now, changes things up. It is not just, “Lizzie, did you do it?”

Dave Schrader brought together three other paranormal experts to look into the Borden family curse, including someone who is related to her. Sam Baltrusis, author and paranormal expert, is related to her via her mother’s side. They are joined by medium Chris Fleming and paranormal investigator Luann Joly.

They will look into other people in Borden’s family, who were murdered and murdered before her earlier in the 1800s. Are their spirits haunting the house along with Lizzie’s?

Then there have been rumors Lizzie’s uncle might have been practicing in the occult.

But it goes back even further than that. Lizzie’s biological mother was related to someone who was tried in the Salem Witch Trials. Could the family have been cursed for 200 years and not even know it?

All of the above is what the four of them are going to look into as they investigate the house and some neighboring areas that are connected to the family.

What will they find out when they hold a séance and try to communicate with whoever is in the house with spirit writing. Will we finally learn who killed Andrew and Abby Borden. Was she possessed by a dark spirit who killed them? Will she prove to them that she is innocent once and for all? What more will we learn about her relatives that came before her and met horrific ends?

I can’t tell you that. All I can tell is that you want to watch it because this is a new twist on a very old story. One that had me intrigued during the whole two-hour doc.

I am so sick of paranormal shows that do the same thing that other programs have done before them. I never heard anything about the Borden Family Curse before this, and now I am obsessed with learning more.
