Angel is a disturbed teen who becomes obsessed with her nice stepfather Steven. After her mother dies under unusual circumstances, Angel is sent to an institution. Years later, she is let out and tracks down her dear step-dad who now lives with his new girlfriend Michelle. He is technically her only kin so he takes her in, but his girlfriend doesn't like Angel one bit. Angel's obsession with her "dad" is as strong as ever and she fantasizes about seducing him. After spying on him and his girlfriend having passionate sex, she begins playing a deadly game and even tries to seduce his hostile girlfriend. However, Steven has a more immediate and obvious problem - a drug dealer called Johnny Ventura.
Many modern B-movies, especially the Erotic Thriller kind, take themselves much too seriously and consequently suffer - because the viewer never does. Some B-movies therefore go to the other extreme and spoof themselves, like the Vice Academy series. This does not work very well either, because this genre is very difficult to spoof, unless you are satisfied with the slapstick version.
Much better is the approach taken in this film: it does not take itself seriously one minute, although all the sex and violence are played straight (albeit bordering on the farcical side). It is sleazy, it knows it is sleazy, it has fun being sleazy. In a way it relates to the majority of modern B-movies as Destry Rides Again (1939) relates to the majority of Westerns. In other words, it is tongue-in-cheek, but it plays strictly by the genre rules, and the result is much better than the average genre entry.
