DESCRIPTION:
(from Lifetime's press release, April 2018) Following last year's harrowing true story, Girl in the Box that reached over two million viewers, Lifetime presents the disturbing new original movie Girl in the Bunker, based on the true story of Elizabeth Shoaf who was abducted and held captive in a hidden underground bunker. The dark, psychological drama stars Henry Thomas (E.T.), Julia LaLonde (Anne of Green Gables) and Moira Kelly (One Tree Hill) and is set to debut Memorial Day, Monday, May 28 at 8pm ET/PT. While walking home from the school bus stop, a man dressed as sheriff's deputy handcuffs Elizabeth (LaLonde) for marijuana possession and marches her deep into the woods against her protests and placed in an underground bunker. Elizabeth's sudden disappearance sparks a massive police search with hundreds of volunteers and officers fanning through miles of dense woodland while helicopters circled overhead. At the mercy of a dangerous and psychologically unhinged captor, Vinson Filyaw (Thomas), a fugitive sexual predator, Elizabeth realizes that in order to survive, she must take matters into her own hands and gradually began to win his trust as she plots her escape. Kelly portrays Elizabeth's mother Madeline.
