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 the beginning.

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.

Meanwhile though 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.

Ultimately though the cops & Mr Rinalti do catch up with her & want to arrest her .... when she locks herself in & blows her brains out ...

Everything over ?

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.

 

Rather 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.
