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?

Although this entry in the "Masters of Horror" series is very light on chills, it followed the formula of other installments from Season 1- Deer Woman, Pick Me Up, Haeckel's Tale, Dance of the Dead etc and it delivered on being goofy. Argento's "Jenifer" differed in that it counteracted it with insanely grotesque and disturbing moments, this one, is surprisingly mild. If the gratuitous bare breast scenes were omitted, "Sick Girl" could have been a PG-13 rated Sci-Fi comedy that may please some but infuriate those who are in need of thrills, chills and graphic horror. With that sad, this quirky entry is highly watchable thanks largely to the over the top performance of Angela Bettis who plays a gentle but nerdy entomologist who is in search of love and just when the perfect girl (Erin Brown) enters her life, a mysterious insect (who was sent to her via mysterious circumstances from Brazil) infects the girlfriend thus jeopardizing the relationship and their very lives. There are a few moments of slimy gore and the climax is decent enough however more was needed to make this truly frightening. I will admit, I am not familiar with Lucky McKee's work. Maybe if I had watched some of his previous work, I would have known what to expect from this. As I already mentioned, Bettis' performance is what kept me entertained. She puts everything she has into her peculiar character in need of love and acceptance and her quirky accent and tone just adds to the fun factor. Brown's performance is not as memorable but she isn't bad either and it's not her fault her character is a little lackluster however since she does become the insects feeding ground, she has the opportunity to make her character a bit more interesting and she does.Read more ›

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.
