Reviewed on 11/19/2013...
A pre-'Charmed' Rose McGowan is the lone bright spot in this teenybopper variation on 'Fatal Attraction,' as a disturbed high schooler who develops a fixation on her hunky creative writing teacher. Naturally she will allow no one - not Teacher Guy's girlfriend, her religious nut grandmother, or her social worker - to get in the way of her happiness, even if it leads to murder. This is totally predictable teen slasher stuff, but I have had a major crush on Rose since the late 90s and she looks dynamite here.... so it gets a pass.

Rose McGowan is pure evil - I think I'm in love
Daniel Jolley | Shelby, North Carolina USA | 11/14/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Some men in this world, one Peter Rinaldi (Alex McArthur) in particular, would apparently prefer that the hottest woman on the face of the earth (Rose McGowan, who plays troubled teen Debbie Strand) not fall in love with them far beyond the point of simple obsession. I know - it's hard to believe. Sure, the guy already has a girlfriend he loves, and granted, Debbie is a "minor" who also happens to be one of his students, but come on - this is a consistently scantily-clad Rose McGowan we're talking about. Right or wrong, Rinaldi eventually finds out that refusing the love of this gorgeous young woman really does no one any good whatsoever. Okay, I'm going on a little bit, so I will state for the record that teachers should not have any sort of personal relationships with any of their students, even if that student is Rose McGowan. The thing to do would be to wait for Debbie to graduate, of course, but young Debbie has nothing but green lights at the traffic stops of her trouble mind. She takes what she wants, getting rid of anything that gets in her way, and what she wants is creative writing teacher Peter Rinaldi.Luckily for us, the viewing audience, Debbie's new high school does not have a dress code. If girls were allowed to dress the way Debbie does, the number of male high school dropouts would go immediately to zero. I know I should talk about the plot, and I will, but for me this movie is first and foremost about just watching the entrancing Rose McGowan; gorgeous doesn't even begin to describe her. Alas, though, her character Debbie Strand is not perfect. She has a tendency to fall madly in love and stalk a school teacher from time to time, she is not above stealing, and she is just deliciously vindictive, jealous, and - well - evil. Oh yeah, she also kills people sometimes. It's not all her fault, though. Her childhood was not a happy one, and when we first meet her, her house has just burned down (with her mother and one of her teachers inside). Off to grandmother's house she goes, into a new environment that frankly just doesn't suit her or meet her needs. Grandma is apparently related by blood to Carrie White's mother, as she is a puritanical woman determined to turn Debbie into a good Christian girl, even if she has to beat the devil out of her to do it. The rest is pretty simple. Her flirtation with young Mr. Rinaldi quickly snowballs into the kind of obsession that leaves a trail of bodies in its wake. The predictable ending is something of a let-down, but this is for the most part a darn good movie.Some of the peripheral characters could have used some building up, especially the detectives investigating the big fire and slowly putting two and two together; it's hard to take two guys seriously when all they do is quiz each other on the spellings and definitions of difficult words. Really, though, this movie comes down to two characters, and we do get to know each of them pretty well. The fact that Rinaldi can resist Debbie's increasingly forward advances makes him either a sort of superman or an incredible fool. As for Debbie, we get a pretty good handle on her early on, long before we learn all of her secrets - these secrets, plus the unfriendly reaction toward her by certain people, actually make her a sympathetic character of sorts. The story sort of plays it loose early on, but once the climactic buildup for the conclusion begins forming, this story of obsession, love, and derangement shifts into overdrive and takes us down cinematic curves that leave us screaming with excitement despite the imminent danger always there in front of our eyes. Take away those stupid vocabulary quizzes by the two detectives, and I would probably have given this film five stars. Even if this were the worst film ever made, though, it would still be worth watching just for Rose McGowan. She is simply stunning in this motion picture, exhibiting acting skills that nearly approximate the depth of her unique beauty. Believe me: evil never looked so good."
You watch this with the full understanding of why or you won

"This just was what it was; a hot, whacked out chick doin' a lot of bad deeds due to obsession, etc., etc., etc. Crazy girl eye candy. I knew that when I rented it and was not disappointed. There are no awards to be won here. Acting was a hair spotty once in awhile. There was a bunch of annoying camera angle darting abouts that went on too long and didn't seem to fit with the flow. The main male seemed way too ignorant of the potential career-ending relationship that was brewing. His ignorance was a bit annoying to the point that I was happy when he started paying for it. But I'm a Rose fan and I think she actually did a fine job as the psycho lead. There was one particularly brutal scene that surprisingly made me squirm. Had to do with who was beating on whom. But the dark comedy was rich and often delivered in blase form, which made it enjoyable overall."
"Fatal Attraction" with a teenaged temptress, plus.
Ken Jensen | 05/05/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Former girlfriend of shock rocker Marilyn Manson, and costar of
"Charmed", is anything but in this "Fatal Attraction" like movie, with a teenage temptress, whose obsession with her teacher leads to "fatal" consequences for anyone who gets in her way. Ms. McGowan manages to create a certain amount of "heat", i.e., sensuality, without taking her clothes off (at least on camera) [there is a hint of implied "nudity" with a "jock" in one scene].
Still, the ending was kind of predictable. I am curious to see the sequel, which I recently bought, to see if the same amount of suspense is generated."
