Customer Reviews

I've seen this movie twice.
sauerkraut
This movie is much more raw than Jawbreaker; not up to The Doom Generation but still a lot of fun.
Noel McKinney
It's a film that is great to watch, with decent dialogue and acting.

Format: DVD
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.

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.

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
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.

I really enjoyed this movie. Rose McGowan did a great job as the villianess Debbie. My favorite line from the movie "It's a family thing." The movie was, in my opinion, a black comedy. And Rose totally looked like trailer trash on her first day of school--brilliant! You should definately watch this movie when you haven't got anything better to do.

Devil in the Flesh (Steven Cohen, 1998)

The whole "erotic thriller" thing is a movie that manages about one pearl for every thousand swine. Not that it stops studios from pumping them out like M&Ms. The late nineties were an especially fertile breeding ground for the erotic thriller, and pretty much all of them were awful. Case in point: Devil in the Flesh, which has as its only selling point these days a nubile Rose McGowan looking quite delectable. Too bad the rest of the movie doesn't measure up.

Plot: after some nastiness at her old school, Debbie Strand (McGowan, recently of the Conan the Barbarian remake) is sent by the state's foster care system to live with her grandmother (Imitation of Life's Peg Shirley). No sweat, she thinks, until she finds out the grandmother is a crazy religious nut who expects Debbie to be her personal slave girl. Worse, she's also got a couple of detectives (Wag the Dog's Phil Morris and Gigli's Robert Silver) nosing around trying to figure out what happened at her former school. All that fades into the background, though, when she sets eyes on hunky Peter Rinaldi (Conspiracy Theory's Alex McArthur), an English teacher at her new school. Debbie sets her sights on Peter, and god help anyone who gets in her way...

To put it simply: this is ridiculous. The script tries to marry horror story with teen sex comedy and does neither with any competence. The acting is baseline, but barely that; given the talent assembled for this movie, I have to give director Steve Cohen grudging respect for being enough of a director to get this entire cast to act this badly. And the erotic aspects of the script are... well, nonexistent would be the best way to describe them.

Unless you're a huge fan of someone who was involved in this production (I watched it solely because of Wendy Robie, who was in it for far too little time), you should not only pass it up, but flee screaming in terror. *
