I must admit, I am usually a bit dubious when looking at TV movies, as in most cases they are quite poor, but in this case I was pleasantly surprised. This was mainly due to the superb performance of Amanda Donaghue, who made a convincing & sympathetic psychotic killer (why is it every feature film has to have a British nasty? I know they are always good, but come on), which makes a change from the usual one diminsional characters. The rest of the cast played the part too, & were quite good, making you at least believe in them, though there was the usual nonsense of ancient pupils, who were in alot of cases not much younger than Amanda Donaghue. Ignoring this hilarity, the plot though not exactly thought provoking was at least adequate, & was everything else. So although the film had nothing that hadn't been seen before, it is not bad, & worth a look if only for Miss Donaghue. Now, why didn't I have a horny teacher like her when I was at school.
