Heather Morris in Psycho Wedding Crasher (2017)

Nice Day for a Bloody Wedding

When her father died Jenna (Heather Morris) went to live with her Aunt Daisy (Joan Van Ark - Loyal Opposition) and began working for her as a wedding dress maker. Over the years Jenna has made many a pretty dress for various brides but at the same time has had to endure her aunt's mean spirited nature and constant put downs to make her feel both unworthy and ugly. But when Jenna meets Marci (Fiona Vroom - A Stranger with My Kids) and her new husband, Glenn (Jason Cermak - Common Chord), she becomes infatuated in making Glenn hers and then escaping from her evil aunt. But in order to do so Jenna is going to have to get devious to drive a wedge between Marci and Glenn and if that means murder, well nothing is going to get in her way.

Cause and effect, I am sure it was taught at school but you can learn all about it if you watch Lifetime movies. Take "Psycho Wedding Crasher" we have the constant nastiness of Aunt Daisy which has caused Jenna to be desperate to escape and to not just fantasize about one of the grooms which she meets but then taking her fantasies into the real world as she becomes obsessed with making him hers. Unfortunately that makes "Psycho Wedding Crasher" an incredibly simple movie with little in the way of narrative surprises.

Joan Van Ark in Psycho Wedding Crasher (2017)

But then "Psycho Wedding Crasher" is a movie which is very much about two characters with Joan Van Ark delivering what I call a pantomime performance as evil Aunt Daisy with her mean spirited nature almost etched into her face. Basically it is over the top but at the same time entertaining for being so as is Heather Morris' performance as she sells the split personality side of Jenna with almost a comic flare, especially in those scenes where she goes all Walter Mitty and starts fantasizing.

The thing is that as I mentioned "Psycho Wedding Crasher" is a Lifetime movie and as such whilst we have Jenna being obsessed, delusional and of course psycho it isn't really in your face when it comes to her psychotic actions. And in truth with there being an over the top almost comical nature to some of the performances it makes some of the dramatic scenes lack the atmosphere of fear which would make this movie exciting as well as entertaining.

What this all boils down to is that "Psycho Wedding Crasher" isn't really anything new as it is simply another movie about the desperate acts of a delusional woman who is obsessed with another woman's man. But for all that is familiar about "Psycho Wedding Crasher" it is still entertaining thanks to that almost pantomime, over the top nature to some of it.
