After her mother has died in a mysterious fire doing Debbie's teacher
- who naturally died in the fire as well -, 17 year old Debbie (Rose McGowan,
then aged 25) is sent to live with her granny (Peg Shirley), a woman religious
to the point of bigotry ... which is of course a stark contrast to Debbie's
modern, sometimes even criminal lifestyle, so of course the 2 clash right from
In her new school meanwhile, Debbie soon falls in love with
Mr.Rinalti (Alex McArthur), her teacher for creative writing, & from here
on she tries everything to get him into bed with her, from trying to make his
temporal breakup with his girlfriend Marilyn (Sherrie Rose) a permanent one to
push another student (Krissy Carlson) who has set her eyes on him down some
stairs - & her methods become more & more psychotic.
cops Rosales (Phil Morris) & Archer (Robert Silver) have done a little
digging in the death of Debbie's mother & her teacher & find out the 2
have been killed prior to the fire, & that Debbie had a massive crush on
her teacher herself ... which makes Debbie the prime suspect.
& it soon
turns out that Debbie really is a lethal lady, as she kills her granny (but the
bitch had it coming), a boy who tries to rape her & Miss Nishikashi (Julia
Nickson-Soul) from youth welfare who is a bit too nosy for her tastes.
though the cops & Mr Rinalti do catch up with her & want to arrest her
.... when she locks herself in & blows her brains out ...
Not quite, as the dead girl was actually NOT Debbie but her best friend
Janie (J.C.Brandy), whom Debbie killed in her place, & Debbie - presumed
dead - now prepares to seize the opportunity to bum off Rinalti's girlfriend
Marilyn - with whom he was just recently reunited - for good while he's out at
the police station to make a statement about her suicide.
But naturally just
in time he figures out that the dead girl can't be Debbie, races home &
saves Marilyn just in time, & only a cop has to give his life in this
desperate action ... Debbie is arrested for murder (naturally), but in the last
shot it is suggested, she might make friends with her arresting officer.
lame highschool psychothriller that manages to - despite an elaborate plot of
false clues & deception - stay predictable throughout. There isn't a single
twist or turn that hasn't been used hundreds of times (& often better than
here), there is no surprise that comes as a surprise in the slightest or any
effort to take the plot into an only vaguely original direction. & Rose
McGowan tries so hard to be a lethal teen-bitch it's almost endearing.
