Lifetime’s new film, Girl in the Basement, is based on the true story of Elisabeth Fritzl. It stars Stefanie Scott and Judd Nelson. In the story, Sara is a vibrant teen looking forward to her 18th birthday so she can leave her controlling father. Instead, she becomes a prisoner.
Lifetime’s Girl in the Basement
Based on real events, ‘Girl in the Basement’ reveals how an 18-year-old Austrian girl was kept captive for over twenty years by her father. Sara longed to be an adult so she could move out of her father’s house, but instead, she’s trapped by her abusive father. While she was held captive by her father, she was drugged with ether and confined to her basement. As a result, she is subjected to sexual abuse and raped repeatedly by her father.
Despite its grim premise, “Girl in the Basement” is not a horror movie. The series focuses on a real-life story: a teenage girl is confined in her family home after a sexual assault. The show stars Stefanie Scott, Judd Nelson, and Joely Fisher. It first aired on the Lifetime Network in the US, and now you can watch it online, on the Lifetime app, or on your TV. However, you will need to sign up to watch the series.
The Lifetime network has a new series of movies called “Ripped from the Headlines.” All these films are true stories based on real events. “Girl in the Basement” follows the story of Sara, played by Stefanie Scott. Her father Don repeatedly abuses her and imprisons her in a basement. Sara eventually escapes her underground prison and runs away to find freedom.
Film based on true story of Elisabeth Fritzl
The film focuses on the tragic life of Elisabeth Fritzl, a woman who suffered from unimaginable abuse at the hands of her father. Almost daily, her father would visit her in the basement chamber and repeatedly rape her. Despite all the abuse, Elisabeth managed to give birth to her first child, Kerstin, in 1988. She gave birth to six more children in the following fourteen years. Sadly, one of her children, Michael, died at a young age from breathing problems and her father took his body.
The story of Elisabeth Fritzl’s plight is one of the most horrific in the history of modern-day Germany. Almost three decades ago, Elisabeth was the daughter of a wealthy, abusive father. Her father provided food and clothing, but he also punished his daughter. During the investigation, Elisabeth was not allowed to talk to the police. She was afraid to tell them the truth about what happened to her. However, she eventually agreed to cooperate with the police and was granted a safe haven by police, who assured her that they would protect her.
“Girl in the Basement” is based on the true story of Elisabeth Fritz’s plight. Her father held her captive for almost 25 years. It’s the latest addition to Lifetime’s “Ripped from the Headlines” marathon and dramatizes the real story of this tragic woman. It is a compelling story for true crime lovers.
Stars Stefanie Scott and Judd Nelson
The Lifetime network has lined up a new show based on the true story of a teenage girl who is locked up in her family’s basement. The show stars Stefanie Scott, Judd Nelson and Joely Fisher. The story revolves around a young girl named Sara who becomes pregnant.

The actor first acted in the 1980s in movies like ‘The Breakfast Club’ and ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ and was part of the ‘Brat Pack’ that included Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore, Ally Sheedy, and Molly Ringwald. Nelson has worked with several Hollywood celebrities, including Nicki Swift and Demi Moore.
The Lifetime film “Girl in the Basement” is based on a true story. It’s about an abusive father who trapped his young daughter Elisabeth in his basement for 20 years. The father also raped her and fathered seven children with her. The family believes Stefanie ran away, but the story is more complex than that.
The upcoming drama “Girl in the Basement” is being produced by Big Dreams Entertainment and Swirl Films for Lifetime. The film stars Stefanie Scott and Judd Nelson. It will premiere in 2021.
