Hilariously sleazy trash.
28 January 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Surpasses SAVAGE STREETS as the most unabashedly sleazy film I've ever had the pleasure of watching, and you're reading the comments of someone who's seen plenty of sleaze in his time.

A bitchy high-school girl turns to prostitution to support her drug habit, then uses it to blackmail her teachers into giving her high grades because graduation is such a high priority (!), then begins working for another pimp who pays her more but requires her to do a few "hits" for him, then uses her new and suddenly polished sociopathic ways to kill those who are a "thorn", as she puts it. Got all that? That's what this movie is about. Sounds repulsive and degrading, which it is, and along with its straight-faced display of the rushes, that's what makes it so darn hilarious.

Poorly directed and (especially) edited, but has a strong cult potential nonetheless. Jill Lansing's wholly convincing performance (and frequent nudity) as the slutty teen enhances the film's sleazy appeal. A wonder she didn't go on to bigger (more controversial) and better (sleazier) trash epics.

The Maltin summary's final line is an equally amusing summation: "Not the innocent youth opus its title might lead you to expect". LOL!

*1/2 out of ****.

MPAA: Rated R for nudity, language, violence, sensuality, and some drug use.
