Stranger with my Face

August 2009 Lifetime TV Movie based on the novel by by Lois Duncan.

While Orphan got all the hoopla because it was on the big screen, this is also a film about a dangerous, homicidal adoptee.

After the death of her father Laurie is haunted. then her mother suddenly tells her: She was a twin and they only adopted her and left her twin sister. That's who's haunting her!

It goes on with outer body soul travel and gives new meaning to "good adoptee/bad adoptee" or the classic good twin/bad twin archetype.

Adoption - though central to the plot - is made almost non-existent as an issue, with no one addressing whether her "sister" was likewise adopted! A really dumb movie!
