Storyline

The Devil is a woman! She is on the run and being pursued by God's "chaser", (who is an ex-lover coincidently). The chase drops her in the lap of an ongoing birthday party where shy Maggie is on a blind date with equally shy David. As the Devil inhabits Maggie's body the fun starts. First she proves that there is no one that she cannot offend, most especially her girlfriends when she takes their boyfriends upstairs for some killer (no shit) sex. As the bodys pile up the chaser arrives. Lovers tiff doesn't begin to go into the arguing that ensues as the plot reveals that the devil is pissed because she is jealous of her boyfriends over-enthusiastic flirting. Every woman in the film wants to pound our chaser into pulp as his obnoxiousness escalates. Also not to be messed are the crop of Nuns with rocket launchers and semi-automatic weaponry. Quick trips in and out of deep space, bodies in the bathtub, and restaurants where the food attack the patrons. A must see, must rent, and must own... Written by Tari <shipley@dis.org>

Trivia

Was originally planned to be called "Babysitter From Hell", in which Maggie would become possessed by the devil and terrorize the children she was babysitting. This was later changed to "Girlfriend From Hell" Which would allow more adult themes and have more grown up actors working full time. See more »

What'd you expect?
29 June 1999 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

I won this in an auction on ebay for about 3 bucks, so I figured it was worth it. You can't go wrong for 3 bucks, right? Right! While Girlfriend From Hell may not be the best movie ever, it certainly beat the hell out of the movie I saw Sunday night -- Never Been Kissed. Looking at the IMDb info, I find it hard to believe this was made in 1990 -- the movie screams 80s. Outfits, hairstyles, music...Girlfriend From Hell is about a shy woman -- Maggie -- who gets possessed by the devil. Dana Ashbrook, later of Twin Peaks fame, plays Chaser, a spirit whose job is to track this devil down and destroy her. Maggie, now possessed, wreaks havoc on everyone in the movie, and a few funny scenes ensue: the amount she can drink in one sitting, Rambo nuns, etc. The movie really goes pretty slowly for the first half, but picks up greatly in the second half when Chaser wakes up goes after Maggie. Chaser is a sexist jerk, and has some pretty funny lines. The two surviving women in the movie also have some pretty funny lines at his expense. This is the type of movie you'd be likely to see at 3am on USA on a Saturday night. There's a gratuitous nudity scene that wouldn't make it on tv, but that doesn't really make it worth renting this film. If there's nothing else in the store, pick this up. Or, if it's on tv, don't be afraid to watch it. It's not that bad.
