good b-movie
3 March 2001 | by (salem or) – See all my reviews

You have to start somewhere to try and outgrow that little girl image, why not in an adult horror flick. Drew Barrymore made this not long after poison ivy and in this one she goes a step further towards adulthood by playing a good girl who's being stalked by a slutty, murderous double of herself. Is it a great movie? no. Does it entertain? yes. Plus drew is nude. b-movie classic.
