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 »

Maggie's bottle of red wine disappears between shots whilst walking over to Teddy sat on the couch at the party. See more »

The Devil made her do it... ...not that she minded!
25 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well... Girlfriend from hell is about a shy single soul called Maggie who just so happens to be set up by her friends for a birthday party. When the Devil is being chased by 'Chaser' it enters the body of little shy Maggie. Not so shy anyone, Maggie goes on the town with her friends to raise some hell and boy does she!!!

Some people may be off put by the first scene which happens to be worse the 'The Blob's' first scene.

Every single person in the film is wonderful and I'm sure that you will laugh out aloud at this one, even if you don't want to.

Nuns with guns... Killer lobsters... steering wheel jams... blow jobs from hell... five wrapped sweaters... a cake... And for god sake... When invited to a birthday party of Rocko's, DO NOT burst a balloon.

The woman playing Rocko's girlfriend is the highlight of this film. She makes me smile and laugh just from looking at her doing nothing! For example, when Rocko burst a balloon....

"WHAT did you do that for...?" "It was a stupid balloon!" "It wasn't just a stupid balloon, it was one of your birthday balloons I spent a very long time blowing up..!" (KICKS HIM IN THE FACE)

FANTASTIC, HILARIOUS COMEDY THAT IS VERY WELL DONE... LOOK OUT FOR THE SCENE WITH THE VASE!
