mildly amusing garbage
8 March 2007 | by (The land of the Bunyips) – See all my reviews

Is this Poe or a sequel to "Reform School Girls"?! The plot has something to do with a young teacher who arrives at a girls' mental facility (or is it a home for delinquent girls?) to discover that some of them are disappearing without a trace. It turns out they're being sucked through the ground into little tubes for whatever ominous reason. My favorite scene is when a teen girl (who looks 35) is curling her hair in the kitchen with a mixer (!) and ends up getting scalped with it. There's something fabulously trashy about this movie, but it has no right to carry the Edgar Allen Poe moniker before it's title. It has about as much to do with Poe as it does with Shakespeare.
