The Lifetime movie Terror in the Woods is sadly inspired by true events. Two quiet 12-year-old girls, Rachel (Ella West Jerrier) and Kaitlyn (Sophie Grace), spend a lot of time together in their small-town. During a sleepover, they looked up scary stories and find “Suzerian”, a clawed monster who lures kids into the woods. The girls believe Suzerain is real and that he would hurt their families if they didn’t do what he told them to, including providing a human sacrifice. The girls pick their friend Emily (Skylar Morgan Jones) and stab her with a pair of scissors. Emily survives and Rachel and Kaitlyn are found guilty of the brutal attack.
Kaitlyn’s mother Dani is portrayed by Angela Kinsey. She’s known for her roles on Fresh Off the Boat (Amy Chestnut), The Hotwives of Las Vegas (First Lady), The Hotwives of Orlando (Crystal Simmons), and The Office (Angela Martin), among others. Terror in the Woods premieres on Lifetime on Sunday, October 14 at 8pm.
