Hi, I was referred to this board from the LJ community whatwasthatone.

So, this request is a little unusual. I just attended my high school graduation, and the administrative staff revealed that our head of school once acted in a B-list movie under her maiden name. They challenged us to find out what movie it was.

My friends and I have been working on finding either her maiden name or the name of the movie from what little we know. So far, no luck.

Maybe someone will recognize the movie? What we know:

- A murderess kills a number of women before committing suicide.
- The number of victims may have been seven or eight.
- The murderess would have been played by an actress called Jan or Janet.

Not a lot to go on, I know. But asking can't hurt. Thanks in advance!

This was the first one that came to mind, minus the suicide part though as far as I'm aware. Starring "Janet Penner"...

Circus' suggestion looks like it could be it.  In case it's not, is there a time frame this film could have been made?  (80s, 90s, etc...)  And what country could it be from?

Set out runnin', but I take my time.

Sorry, I dont think it's unhinged, there was something like 3 or 4 deaths. I dont recall a suicide but I believe the woman was the brother acting as his sister; or something like such.

On IMDB Janet Penner was recently in a 2010 tv show called: Leverage

Although it's likely that jazelock wasnt given all the facts (and the number of deaths is wrong, such and such) and Unhinged (1982) is the movie.
