Billed as a movie 'inspired by actual events,' "Twisted Desire" tells the story of Jennifer Stanton, a teenage girl, who hates her overly strict parents. Just when her parents think they have the wayward teen's behavior under control, she meets a young ex-con who is willing to do anything for her, even murder her parents.

The true story that inspired the movie is based on the murder of a Virginia couple in 1990. That's when police say, Jessica Wiseman convinced her boyfriend to kill her parents and then abandoned him after the crimes were committed.
