Editorial Reviews

Angela Bettis (MAY,TOOLBOX MURDERS) stars as a shy entomologist whose drab life is changed by the simultaneous arrival of a large,mysterious bug and a torrid affair with a sexy young woman (Erin Brown, aka erotic scream queen Misty Mundae). But when the bizarre insect chooses a shocking place to secretly feed, Sapphic ecstasy turns to infection,mutation and murder. Will these lesbian lovers let a venomous threesome tear them apart, or is the most horrific metamorphosis of all yet to come? Co-written and directed by Lucky McKee, this babes ‘n’ bugs shocker features extreme monster mayhem by KNB EFX (LAND OF THE DEAD, HOSTEL) in one of the most unique films of the series Fangoria calls "A smashing success…one the best anthology fright shows ever!

Customer Reviews

This is an interesting film with a good build-up and acting.
Joshua Koppel
These characters were unique and surprisingly well fleshed out for the short time allotted to setting up their relationship and their personalities.
titania86
Offering ample amounts of creepiness and skin crawling fun, Sick Girl is one of the more fun entires in Showtime's Masters of Horror anthology.

The Masters of Horror Series has a tendency to over-emphasize the "Master" part. While Lucky McKee may be well on his way to entering that hall, he is by no means a master. But at the very least, he does direct horror movies. (When did half these guys become "Masters of Horror"? Was I Sleeping?)
Anyway I loved his first movie "May" but never saw his second one "The Woods" So I went into this flick with almost no expectations what-so-ever. And what I got was a lesbian love story with a 6-legged twist. The best way I can descibe it is if "David Cronenberg" directed an episode of "Tales from the Crypt".
There's relatively no blood in this film. (Something I generally need in a horror movie) And yet suprisingly I wasn't disappointed. The acting was pretty convincing. (Which I think was a good distraction from the lack of gore.) Misty Mundae played the childish, fast-talking, artist Misty, and Angela Bettis seemed at home as the "stiff as a stiff" entimologist Ida Teeter. They did such a good job with their roles, they actually forced me to like the characters. Even the supporting cast was enjoyable.
The plot was straight foward. Lesbian gets a bug in the mail; Lesbian falls in love; Bug bites Lesbians Lover; Lover becomes impregnated with bugs love children and as a result completely flips out of her brain cell.
All in all, it was a quick story, with good pacing, a few gross out scenes to drive it along, believable acting, hokey yet enjoyable special effects, (I don't know if I mentioned naked lesbians, or not), a hilarious scene in a chinese restaurant, all ultimately leading to its metamorphic ending, which will disappoint some but please most.
1 Star for the pace
1 for the characters (What can I say?

* Spoilers *

Ida Teeter is an entomologist who loves her job, but finds it hard to find a girlfriend that accepts it. Being shy and kind of awkward doesn't help either. All of this changes when her co-worker points out a beautiful girl who sketches in their office lobby every day. Ida is dubious, but eventually learns that her name is Misty Falls and awkwardly asks her out a couple days later. Their relationship steadily progresses and they move in together. Before they met, a large, strange bug was sent to Ida by an anonymous source. It escapes, nests in her pillow, and bites her girlfriend. Misty starts to act strangely, but she dismisses it as sickness. Bad idea.

Lucky McKee's Sick Girl was featured as an episode in the Masters of Horror TV series. Despite its short runtime, it proved to be an excellent film. Angela Bettis and Erin Brown were perfect as Ida and Misty. Their chemistry was slightly awkward, but sweet and romantic all the same. I found Ida's old fashioned style and deliberate way of speaking, as well as Misty's frenetic energy, endearing. These characters were unique and surprisingly well fleshed out for the short time allotted to setting up their relationship and their personalities. Their relationship and their sexuality were never used solely to titillate the male audience (as is true with many horror films), but as a normal, heart-warming love story with a deeper meaning than just putting nudity on the screen.

I believe this film is about the demonization of the homosexual lifestyle by the majority of our society. Each person in the film that interact with Ida and Misty are representative of an aspect of society and their typical opinions about homosexuality.

It's a common flaw for the MOH series: you're tossed an idea that wouldn't make for a bad little horror story, but the execution is ruinous and the tension is deflated by a running time that's forty minutes too long. Take "Sick Girl," for example.

An entomologist who has a bad habit of taking her work home with her loses in her apartment a bizarre Brazilian bug. This happens at about the same time that she finds an equally bizarre girlfriend. The two sexy ladies frolick and cavort, but one of them has an encounter with the AWOL insect, an encounter that leaves her ... altered. What fate lies in store for the lovers? What will become of the strictly conservative granny-ish landlady? The lovably sexist coworker? The adorable little girl in the ladybug costume?

This horror-less gem takes an hour to answer these questions, and by the time they're resolved, it's hard to remember why you were ever supposed to care. Adding to the mix of Reasons Why This Thing Bites is the incompetent acting of our two lesbian leads. I'll admit I know little about horror veteran Erin Brown, but if her performance here as Misty Falls is any indication, she's very good at moaning, screaming, and looking through her bangs in a sultry, come-hither kind of way. And that's all she's good at. Angela Bettis was great in "May," but she performs every scene here with the studied grace of a telephone pole, and she delivers every line as if she just underwent orthodontic surgery. If those idiosyncracies are meant to be intentional, then I guess at least they're employed with some consistency, but I found them grating. They are to acting what constipation is to reticence.
