Katt Shea Ruben came up with the title, 'Poison Ivy' after shooting began and instantly doubted it and thought it was silly. Only after the crew agreed with her and told her to 'go with her heart' did she stick with the title. See more »
A few scenes before the car accident, Ivy's injury is visible, but very light on her chest. Once the car accident occurs, the injury is in the same place, but much darker. See more »
Drew Barrymore plays Ivy a Lolita-like teen that gradually moves in with a shy reclusive classmate Sylvie(Sara Gilbert)and the presence of the streetwise Ivy starts a chain reaction of mixed emotions. Sylvie's self destructive mother(Cheryl Ladd)is jealous of her husband's(Tom Skerritt) reaction to Ivy's seductive ways. Soon he is hooked and can't get enough of the perverse teen. Questions arise concerning the death of Sylvie's mother about the time Sylvie realizes what is going on between her father and Ivy.
My favorite scene is the sultry love making in the rain on the car hood. It is hard to tell who is seducing who. The 17 year old Barrymore is hypnotic. I couldn't take my eyes off of her. Kudos to Katt Shea for directing this erotic thriller. Note: Look for a young Leonardo DiCaprio.
