The Lifetime movie Girl in the Box is based on the true story of Colleen Stan (Addison Timlin). While hitchhiking from Oregon to California in May 1977, the 20-year-old accepted a ride from a young married couple, Cameron (Zane Holtz) and Janice Hooker. At knife point Colleen was abducted, then held captive for seven years. Cameron keeps Colleen in a coffin-like box under the couple’s bed. When she’s allowed out of the box, Cameron uses her as his S&M slave. His wife Janice explains to Colleen, “You’re just here to take the pain.”
