Product Description

The quiet home of a suburban family is suddenly destroyed when Ivy's beautiful but evil sister Violet returns to her childhood home and shatters the life of her former best friend Joy. Using her sexuality as a weapon she seduces both Joy's father and fiancee. No deception is too treacherous no seduction too dangerous and no crime too heinous for this twisted temptress whose young life was torn apart by an ill-fated affair between her mother and Joy's father. Poison Ivy 3: The New seduction is a steamy pulse-pounding erotic thriller and continues the same provocative and chilling tradition of Poison Ivy and Poison Ivy 2: Lily. Year: 1997 Director: Kurt Voss Starring: Michael Des Barres Megan Edwards Greg Vaughn Susan Tyrrell Jamie Pressly Athena MasseyRunning Time: 93 min.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: DRAMA UPC: 794043484827

Joel Silver (48 Hours, Die Hard, The Matrix) has a theory about action movies--you need a good bang-up scene about every 10 minutes. The people who made The New Seduction operate on the same principle, only instead of car chases and explosions, the curvaceous Jaime Pressly takes her clothes off and then, more likely than not, has sex with someone. If Seduction had been made 60 years ago at Warner Brothers, nobody would have gotten naked, but otherwise this gleefully trashy bit of film noir would have fit right in. The plot's a reworking of the original; this time, Ivy's sister Violet returns after 11 years to wreak havoc on the family that turned her mother (the family maid) out onto the street for sleeping with the man of the house. Pressly brings both a smoldering energy and sense of fun to her very-bad-girl part. As the lonely daughter who was Violet's best friend, Megan Edwards is both appealing and strong enough to avoid being simpy. While this movie lacks the relative subtlety of the original, it's a whole lot more fun than the morose first sequel, Poison Ivy 2. --Geof Miller

Back in the mid 90's, Thursday nights were the official start of the weekend, and we would invariably start with a "group acceptable" movie and a few cocktails at someone's apartment, before invariably heading out into the night. I put "group acceptable" in parenthesis, because "acceptable" was a bit of a misnomer; the only movies that everyone agreed upon were non-plot driven flicks with semi-starlets, who, thankfully enough, were kind enough to appear sans clothing at various times during the course of the show. This movie was one of the last we saw before switching over to Antiques Roadshow (don't ask), and eventually disbanding. I decided to review this movie because now, 4 short years later, I have become fairly domesticated (as has everyone else), and drinking on Thursday's has become a fond, albeit hazy memory from the past, and I want to do my part to ensure that this great piece of cinema is not dismissed as just one more piece of exploitative, late-night HBO soft-core filler that it appears to be.

To hold this movie to the same standards as a regular movie would be a disservice to it, and I think it should be rated against other movies of its genre:

1) Nudity - 5 Stars - What can I say except for bravo. Veteran B-movie writer Karen Kelly has managed to create a plot where nude scenes seamlessly flow into each other, and actually kind of make sense. One constantly expects Ron Jeremy to make a quick cameo; the quality is that good.

2) Starlet Quality - 1 Star- At the time of this movie Jaime Pressly had only one previous acting role (playing the pre-teen American girl in Mercenary), and the excitement factor knowing she was soon to be nude was just not there.

Gorgeous, sexy young blonde actress Jaime Pressly plays a dominatrix who takes revenge on her enemies by seducing and killing them. She uses all the tricks - chains, handcuffs, whips, to bring her men to submission and then strikes. Great sexy concept, like Basic INstinct or Body of Evidence. If the idea of an innocent-looking luscious girl tying up, torturing and killing helpless men turns you on, watch this movie!

Clearly the the most erotic of the "Poison Ivy"movies. Jaime Pressly who plays Violet really takes the movie toanother level. Lets not forget Athena Massey who plays her mother who is also HOT. Megan Edwards played her role well as Joy but dose not show any skin, not that she needed to she was really sexy. The DVD has both the Unrated and R-rated versions and bot fullscreen and widescreen formats, It has no other options like commentary. Buy it if you are a fan of the "Poison Ivy" movies and if you want to see how HOT is Jaime Pressly.
(took off one start 'cuse there is no Commentary)

Let's see. A good hint that any plot you might decipher from this movie (other than T&A) is an obvious afterthought might be the fact that it is "unrated"! Hello! It's 85% sex and nudity! Who needs a "plot"? This isn't just sex and nudity for its own sake either. Well, actually, maybe it is. The naked women are gorgeous and sultry, though. Athena Massey as Rebecca and of course, Jaime Pressly as "grown-up" Violet turn in top-notch performances in the flesh.
In the interest of fairness, the plot is defintely weak but believe it or not, is not as weak the bad reviews here are making it out to be. There have easily been thousands of "naked seductress wreaks havoc on hometown" movies and this one is no better or worse than any of them, story-line wise. But that's not the point. This is not *supposed* to be an intelligent movie. So if you don't get turned on strictly by the hot, barenaked bodies, you're definitely thinking too much and taking the movie entirely too seriously.

Forget the plot. Forget the storyline. The best reason to get this movie......you see Jaime Pressly NUDE!!! Not just once. Not just for a couple seconds. You see her NUDE early and often. The script isn't bad to boot which makes this a great movie...

It's not a book but a video and Jaime Pressly is the female lead. A very attractive blonde in what seems to be her first role. It's in the same league as the Shannon Tweed film Scourned and just as flawed from time to time. This is not like Verhoven-Douglas-Stone mega hit, but more an after midnight Showtime/HBO R rated romp. More than a silly excuse for a plot placed between Jaime Pressly taking her clothes off (which she does several times and she's rather hot). Her acting is generally above average. It runs more like a Red Shoes Diary segement than a Love Street segement. Well worth a look if you're into B softcore stuff with more than just a silly plot. END

I just happened to see this film on cable tv one night.I didnt expect to enjoy it as much as I did.The fact that people complain that this film didn't have a plot is laughable.Of course it doesnt have a plot!What were you expecting,Gone with the Wind?It is just one of those films that you watch if you are a guy who wants to see a hot chick nude and looking sexy for an hour and half, to temporarily forget about your miserable life(Or the fact that you will never have a girlfriend as hot as Jaime Pressley).Jaime Pressly is unbelievably sexy in this film.She's absolutely nude in most of it,and even when she is clothed,she still is extremely hot!It is defintely worth the purchase!
