Editorial Reviews

There s nothing wrong with hurting things smaller than you, provided you also take on things bigger than you . . . Young Izzy (Leslie Andrews) is a girl with issues. Her parents may be dead. Her older brother is fighting in Iraq and she s raising her younger brother, Kevin, all by herself. Things are tough but, with the help of her motorcycle-riding friend Barney, she deals with her situation the best she can. Unfortunately, Izzy isn t exactly stable... and her way of dealing with life s problems includes finding people to torture and kill in the barn near the family home! When a trio of bullies picks on her brother Kevin at school, all hell breaks loose. The two that die are the lucky ones... This sick and twisted independent film from director Eben McGarr is filled with black humor, excellent performances and shocking scenes of extreme gore. SICK GIRL is low budget cinema at it s best (IMDB.COM) and will have horror fans laughing and screaming with delight! Also watch for Stephen (FRIGHT NIGHT) Geoffreys, returning to the horror genre after a 19 year absence. SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: Anamorphic (1.78:1) Widescreen Transfer - English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo - 'DEATH BY...' DVD Featurette - Original Promotional Teaser and Trailer - Sick Girl Public Service Announcement - Bloopers and Outtakes Reel - Stephen Geoffreys Interview Segment - Chapter Selections

Customer Reviews

That's made up for by a compelling, if at times confusing, story and some solid characters.
Robert Beveridge
In some cases they take days and she is able to hide the fact from the people around her and still maintain a logic (a clever logic at that) to justify what she does.
Eric Sanberg
I thought that I was totally desensitized by watching violent, horror movies my whole life but this one made me cover my eyes a few times.

Imagine sitting through the most gloriously depraved mutilation/rape scene you've ever seen - I won't give away the gory details here, but I honestly think it may have outdone anything to be found in "Der Todesking." Not the most disturbing rape scene, per say - it's going to take a filmmaker with a LOT of balls to take that title from "Irreversible" - but just the most deliciously conceived and executed trasho-horror exploitation ever. Now imagine that scene set to "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO - such genius would be cause to throw up your hands in thunderous applause! Which I did.

This scene is one of many gems to be found in "Sick Girl," writer-director Eben McGarr's smart, sick, and shockingly good independent horror film, which will be released on DVD August 25. Sick Girl (Special Edition DVD) (...and no, it's not "Mr. Blue Sky," but it may as well be - Aaron Moreland and Dennis Haggerty's "Familiy Tree" is as perfect a throwback to such 70's vocodered summer-fun-in-the-sun classics as one could hope to find). Smarter than your average slasher film, it's the story of Izzy, a somewhat unhinged teenage girl who spends her time slitting throats, splitting heads, and doing unspeakable things to nuns. She also has three victims tied up in her barn, who she occasionally visits to dole out increasingly sadistic acts of mutilation.

That said, where the film transcends is that it also displays, and really centers on, another side of Izzy - a teenage girl who has been forced to raise her little brother Kevin on her own when their big brother is sent to Iraq.

Format: DVD
Let's cut to the chase. The creator-provided synopsis goes, "A girl who wants to protect her little brother, f___ her older brother and torture everyone else out in the barn." Any questions? Well, while undeniably accurate, the film isn't quite as simplistic as this would suggest. Izzy (Andrews) is left to bring up her young brother (Trepany) after her older sibling heads off to Iraq with the Marines - both parents are absent, and the reasons for this are, interestingly, never made entirely clear, though we have some evidence for Izzy's involvement. The only one who helps out is Barney (McGarr) a biker who plays Santa Claus at the local hospital, but it's soon made clear that Izzy is entirely capable of fending for herself. Especially when a proto-thug at the local school decides to pick on her kid bro.

Izzy is an intriguing mix, a character somewhere between Juno and Dexter; to those she loves, she is fiercely loyal, yet anyone else had best not cross her, or the results will be horrific, in ways beyond your imagination [certainly, at least one sequence goes well beyond our imagination!] I think it's her sheer cold-blooded approach that is the most chilling thing here, and Andrews is simply phenomenal in the role, possessing a calmness which is completely unnerving. Even when engaging in brutality of the most appalling sort, you suspect her heart-beat rarely goes above 85. She even takes time out to lecture small children on the evils of bullying, where her philosophy is, "There's nothing wrong with hurting things smaller than you - providing you also take on things bigger than you. Then size is irrelevant." Cold: very cold. If you want to peer into the abyss which is the very darkest corner of the human psyche, then this is low-budget cinema at its brilliant best. However, you should be aware that you might see things you will not easily forget.

Sick Girl (Eben McGarr, 2007)

I actually grabbed this sight unseen looking for the Masters of Horror episode directed by Lucky McKee, so what I actually got was something of a surprise. A pleasant one, but a surprise nonetheless. Not a bad little film at all, though rumors of its extremity have, in my estimation, been somewhat exaggerated. That's made up for by a compelling, if at times confusing, story and some solid characters.

Plot: Izzy (Actors' Leslie Andrews), the title character, is a lovely young thing who went nuts when her older brother went off to join the military. Her younger brother is getting bullied at school, so Izzy (after an opening scene that, as far as I could tell, connects to nothing else and is just there for the shock value) kidnaps the three bullies and forces them to turn against one another. The top dog ends up shackled in Izzy's barn along with a poor, innocent couple who honestly don't deserve what's coming to them. Really. It's not nice.

If you're looking for flat-out extremity, there are a few movies that should be in the queue before this, but not all that many. Still, while it holds up relatively well against both genre classics like The Devil's Experiment and new flicks like Philosophy of a Knife alike, it never really pushes any more gory envelopes than filmmakers like Brian Paulin (Fetus) or Ron DeCaro (The Gateway Meat) are pushing; if you've seen those and had no problems holding onto your dinner, this one probably won't bug you much, either. The difference is that most gore films that go for extremity are low-budget, badly-acted messes with little attention paid to the characters.
