| The best Lifetime movie ever written.
"A Father's Nightmare" is perhaps the absolute best film I've ever come across on the Lifetime Movies network. Suspenseful, heartbreaking, original, well-written, and superbly well-acted, this story was something that I'd have expected to see on the big screen instead of TV.

The music of the lullaby "Love Me Til You Die" was composed by Alexandra Mihill in five minutes during the shooting of the first film in 2012. The lyrics were written by the writer of the movie Shelley Gillen.

Alternate Versions

A pair of alternate endings aired during Lifetime Movie Network's reairing of the sequel on July 27, 2018. In the first one, after Matt's reveal as Amanda/Vanessa's father, Zofia appeared and revealed herself as her mother, while detailing everything that she had done in her mental state. The scene also included mother and daughter embracing each other, with Vanessa in tears as Zofia sung her familiar song--which Vanessa sings as an anthem to her psychotic actions. Similar to the original ending, Vanessa is arrested and back in a mental hospital, but the final scene shows Vanessa being visited by Matt, much to her pleasure. In a second ending, Vanessa is only confronted by Matt, who ended up having to save Lisa after she slipped and nearly succumbed to her evil half-sister's attempt to kill her. The villainess escaped while Matt came to Lisa's aid, with Laney and Zofia arriving at the scene--the latter asking where her daughter (Amanda/Vanessa) was. The final scene of the second alternate ending showed Vanessa in a different city, giving the indication that she was still up to her villainous actions.
