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?

Sigh. Angela Bettis is perfect here. As usual, whenever there's comedy involved, she nails it. Lucky McKee let her flirt with caricature here without going over the line, and the performance choice fits with the light, cartoony texture of this whole movie. The love story at the heart of it all is simply adorable. My one gripe is that it is pretty obvious that the Bettis part of an awkward scientist Ida Teeter, who has not luck with girls was originally written for a man. It's not so much the interactions with love object and creepy girl Misty Falls (Erin Brown, also excellent performance) as with Teeter's fellow scientist, Max Grubb (Jesse Hlubik). The dialogue just doesn't ring true, which I think is more the fault of McKee's writing than Hlubik's acting—he's quite funny.

packaging and delivery and the quality of the items was fantastic. Thanks ya' all.

After watching this movie I thought I would give my thoughts on it. It's main actor Angela Bettis who has played in May and other horror movies has become a well know for her ability to fit well in the parts she plays. This film is funny yet it holds to the horror type the Masters of Horror has given us. I totally enjoyed it.

Sick Girl is arguably one of the best episodes from the Master of Horror series, sold separately as a single movie by Amazon, with a well-acted drama revolving around a lesbian relationship but less than satisfactory special effects. Nonetheless gay rights advocates should love this one.

The story revolves around a biologist specializing in bugs, who overcomes her shyness, under the encouragement of her colleague, to make advances towards a girl - who she later learns to be her ex-professor's daughter, who harbours a secret infatuation with her and also overcomes her shyness to engage in a loving relationship involving sexual intercourse with her; while she conceals her fascination and obsession with bugs from the professor's daughter, under the influence of her colleague, who fears that the discovery of her secret will scare the girl off, only to have the girl stumbling upon her secret and discovering that they both share the same fascination with bugs, given the fact that the her ex-professor was also a biologist who specializes in bugs, and who, due to his daughter infatuation with his former student, sends her an extremely rare specimen of bugs that when bitten induces a gradual transformation in the victim. When his daughter gets infected, she gradually metamorphosizes and, her lover, likewise, begins to gradually transform once the infection is spread to her, imparting in them the ability to reproduce bug off springs.

This movie speaks loads about the right of lesbians to form meaningful and loving relationships with one another which, may or may not involve sexual intercourse, and their right to adopt children or bear children through the use of artificial insemination from male donors.

* 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.
