The Character of Ivy was originally written to live at the end of the film. The script had Ivy leave the Coopers home at the end and go hitch-hiking. It was only when New Line Cinema told Director, Katt Shea, that they wanted Drew Barrymore's character to die, that she had to go back and film the ending once all the other shooting had finished.

Right at the start of the film, a dog has been run over by a
car. To put it out of its misery, Ivy kills it. As she does, a whole lot of blood splashes on to Sara's face. However, in the next shot, the blood is nowhere to be seen. See more »
She's definitely a turnoff - too overt. I mean, most girls don't fly through the air with their skirt around their waist.

A movie that's more about loneliness than it is an erotic thriller
I really enjoyed the two main characters in the movie - Cooper ( played by Sara Gilbert ) and Ivy ( Drew Barrymore is brilliant in this character ). The film focuses on there friendship and feeling alone as a teenager. I really liked the dialogue between the characters. Especially when Ivy meets Cooper's mother ( played by Cheryl Ladd ) and talks about her own mother and how she flinched every time she touched her and how she died long before she really did. It's just great. Ivy's loneliness soon starts to evaporate as she gains a mother in Chery Ladd, a friend in Sara Gilbert, but then she sets her eyes on Cooper's father ( played by Tom Skerrit ) and wants him in an intimate way. And this is where the movie starts to get erotic as she seduces her best friend's father. But Cooper is starting to see Ivy's evil intentions .....
