Storyline

Debbie Strand set a fire that killed her mother and her mother's boyfriend, and is sent to live with her elderly grandmother, who is an ultra-conservative fundamentalist Christian and her dog. Her grandmother is abusive and physically violent, and even forces her to wear her demeaning, outdated clothes. Debbie kills her grandmother's dog and beats her grandmother to death with her cane after she reads her diary and tells her she's putting her in a reform school. Debbie also eyes one of her new teachers, Mr. Rinaldi. After learning that he has a girlfriend, she deletes her messages on his answering machine and tries to kill her so she can have Mr. Rinaldi to herself. Debbie is eventually arrested and placed in an institution. Written by lisakoffler1967@gmail.com

Where the Wild Rose Grows
13 November 2010 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Ever since the phenomenally weird "The Doom Generation" I've had a wicked crush on Rose McGowan. Her natural bad-girl charisma and sexily shaped chin make her one of the most enticing actresses of her generation. Her starring in "Dearly Devoted" was therefore the sole reason I had for checking out the film, as you can already derive from the DVD-cover that it's a standard, by-the-numbers and rehashed nineties thriller. With its main theme of "dangerously seductive teenage femme fatale", "Dearly Devoted" is similar to "Poison Ivy" (starring Drew Barrymore) and "Wild Things" (starring Denise Richards) and almost identical to "The Crush" (starring Alicia Silverstone). Following the suspicious death of Debbie Strand's mother and her lover in a fire, the seemingly confused teenage girl is put under the custody of her strictly Catholic grandmother. At her new school, Debbie doesn't make a whole lot of friends, but she does fall in love with the hunky literature teacher Peter Rinaldi. It quickly becomes obvious that Debbie isn't your average high school girl, but an obsessive and deranged psychopath who kills in order to get what she wants. "Dearly Devoted" is identical to "The Crush" because the male protagonists go through exactly the same hell. They attempt to befriend their jailbait admirers and narrowly resist all the sexual allusions, but when they actually physically reject them down, both their private as professional lives turn into a living nightmare. "Dearly Devoted" is predictable and not at all suspenseful, but at least it's never boring and the female eye-candy compensates for the unoriginality. The twist-in-the-end is not exactly groundbreaking, neither, but at least it managed to trick me for a minute or so. Rose McGowan was 25 years old for this role in which she depicts an underage schoolgirl, but that's alright, because she looks terrific in all those skimpy outfits. Apparently there's also a sequel, but it doesn't star Rose.
