Poison Ivy II stars Alyssa Milano as Lily, a shy and naive Midwestern girl who moves to L.A. to study to become an artist. After feeling like an outcast among her new, more exotic peers, Lily happens upon a journal stuffed away in a closet in her new apartment. The journal contains stories of a confident seductress who gets what she wants and is not afraid to do anything. Lily decides to "become" this seductress. Sexy Johnathon Schaech plays her love interest.
This movie is very mid '90s--the clothes, hairstyles, music. It is a lot of fun. I first saw this edited for TV a long time ago, but tonight I saw the unedited version on HBO and I must say I had no idea it would be so different. Milano and Schaech give top-notch performances and Xander Berkeley was effective as the creepy, sleazy art professor. The artwork in the film was very beautiful and Joey Krees was too cool as Peter the Performance Artist (surely he has performed in other works?!--nothing listed on IMDb). If you want sensual mid '90s fare, then Poison Ivy II is the one to see.
