AFM 2011: Charisma Carpenter Is a Ringer All Her Own in Deadly Sibling Rivalry
Just what is it with all these "Buffy" folks involving themselves in projects that feature evil twins? Hell, even Xander has gone that route, but at least he's the only one who really has a twin! Either way ... more sales art!
Deadly Sibling Rivalry comes to us from writer/director Johnson Chan and stars Charisma Carpenter, Christa B. Allen, and Ben Milleken.
Ever since they were little, identical twin sisters JANNA and CALLIE have had an incredibly fierce rivalry, each trying to outshine the other and spewing bad blood in the process -- and this conflict grew even worse when they lost their father in a climbing accident at the age of 17.
Now an adult, Janna’s life has settled in. She landed the perfect job and has a beautiful daughter, FIONA, for whom she cares deeply. But as with all mothers of college-age daughters, there are smoldering issues.
Callie, on the other hand, has drifted from job to job and stepped even further over the line on her most recent one. She stole a suitcase full of prescription pharmaceuticals from the company where she worked.
On the run from the law, she escapes to the family cabin and has a reunion with Janna and Fiona. On the way back from the cabin, Janna and Callie have an argument, which leads to the car spinning off the road, injuring both and leaving Callie in a coma.
However, we soon discover that it wasn’t Janna who walked away from the accident, but Callie! She disguised herself as Janna and has taken over her sister’s perfect life. Callie begins her grand charade.
Callie takes over her comatose sister’s life and loves it. But problems begin to surface. Fiona has been away at school for a long time so simply assumes the changes in her “mother’s” behavior are from the accident. However, deeper suspicions set in. And Callie has other problems, too -- an old friend, TRICIA, shows up and sees through her scheme. Tricia wants to be paid off for her silence.
Callie grows more and more reckless and kills Tricia. Meanwhile, Fiona investigates and uncovers evidence of Callie’s theft and becomes certain that her real mom is in the hospital.
Then Janna wakes up! Callie is terrified -- her whole story is blown. However, Janna’s suffered amnesia from the coma and doesn’t remember who she is. Callie knows the amnesia won’t last long. She sets out to kill Janna.
Fiona realizes this, too, and now knows that Callie will stop at nothing. So she helps Janna escape from the hospital and takes her mom back to the cabin to spark her memories and come to terms with the pain of her past. Callie chases them into the woods for a final, deadly showdown.
