A particular cinematic genre, characteristic of but not limited to the Lifetime Network, a/k/a "Television for Women who Conform to our Distorted Stereotype of our Target Demographic".

An extremely ominous phrase, "Lifetime Original Movie" heralds the advent of extreme tear-jerky melodrama, much gratuitous violence against (upper-middle-class white) women, and an unsubtle implication that men exist only to harm and exploit women.

The phrase can also refer to real-life versions of similar over-the-top pseudofeminist melodrama.
Whoa ... we are dealing with some heavy Lifetime Original Movie here.
