The movie is part of a series developed for the Lifetime Channel. The original, titled A Mother’s Nightmare, was released in 2012.

A Father’s Nightmare Storyline
In A Father’s Nightmare, Vanessa has just been released from custody at Oregon State Hospital’s forensic/psych ward, where she found herself at the end of the first movie. She’s released on the conditions of never returning to Ridgewood, and never contacting her estranged father with whom she’s had issues with in the past. Despite her promises to the authorities, it’s not long before she resumes her villainous ways.
She quickly tracks down her father’s address by threatening her former psychiatrist and shows up unannounced at his property development company. She sees an opportunity and takes it; posing as a new employee named Miranda. In the perfect position to wreak havoc from the inside, Vanessa sets her master plan into motion. Her endgame is to kill her father and his new family so she can claim inheritance over his estate.
