Storyline

An unofficial "sequel" to "The Bad Seed", Patty McCormack's "Mommy" is psychotically obsessed with her 12-year-old daughter Jessica Ann -- so much so that when she finds out Jessica didn't get the "Student of the Year" award again, she solves the problem by murdering the teacher who didn't recommend her for it. She dismisses the killing as inconsequential ("a minor accident"), but the homicide detective assigned to the case suspects her immediately, and an insurance investigator who also suspects her tries to get close to Jessica Ann to find out what really happened.

7 March 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

A modest little thriller hurt by lack of budget and the fact that the stunt-casting of Patty "THE BAD SEED" McCormack, now an adult, doesn't work all that well. If you want to view this as a decades-later sequel to "THE BAD SEED," it may go down a little easier. Better yet, skip this one unless you are desperate for something to watch. It is one of those slow-Saturday night-type actioners, a straight-to-video job. Which reminds me, keep an eye out for the legendary Brinke Stevens in a role (as the dowdy sister) that makes her virtually unrecognizable.
