Marathon-worthy movies and shows

 'Watcher in the Woods'
Experience the triumph of a young superstar athlete, the dread in an eerie house, the heat of competition, and more stories of wonderful

women who are taking over your screen this month.

A not-to-be-missed spectacle is the Lifetime Original Movie, The Simone Biles Story: Courage to Soar. It premiered on International Women’s Day, March 8, at 10 p.m.. The biopic is about  the superstar gymnast and her sacrifices and hard work that resulted in 19 Olympic and World Championship medals. 

Catch other Lifetime Original Movies every Wednesday of the month at 9 p.m., starting with The Hunt for the I-5 Killer. Follow this true story as lead investigator Dave Kominek takes on a case—the rape and shooting of two women—which grows into a manhunt for a serial killer who operated along the Interstate-5 highway in 1981. Today, you’ll want to make sure all your doors are locked before you cuddle up to watch Tiny House of Terror. When Samantha Hastings moves out of her high-tech home into a tiny, isolated abode, she gets an unshakable feeling of being watched. Soon, her small space becomes her prison with no way out. 

Premiering on March 21 is a reimagining of an ‘80s cult classic. The Watcher in the Woods sees a family move into an idyllic home by the woods. As strange occurrences start, they discover the home and the town’s dark past. Rounding out the month of Lifetime Original Movies is Bringing Ashley Home on March 28. The touching docudrama centers on Libba Philips as she puts her life on hold to find her missing sister, and help other troubled girls in need. 

Other shows are all ready to entertain you this month, with a new season of reality series, MasterChef Canada, airing from Tuesday to Thursday at 8 p.m.. Then, new episodes of Idol Moms every Thursday at 9 p.m.; Unreal every Tuesday at 10 p.m.; and Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid on March 26 at 8:30 p.m.. 

Lifetime™ is available on SKYCable Ch 65 and Lifetime™ HD Ch 199; Cable Link Ch. 223; Dream Satellite Ch 28; Destiny Ch 44.
