What do you call a grandmother who’s willing to poison children in order to reconnect with her son? Deranged fits. Actress Wendie Malick plays the lead in the Lifetime thriller movie Deranged Granny (originally titled Grandma Dearest) with aplomb. Her character Barbara infiltrates her son Ethan’s (Josh Ventura) new family — he’s married to divorcee Kendall (Amanda Righetti) who has two children.
