Some good acting makes this poor man's "Disturbing Behaviour" interesting.
11 November 1998 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Although standard MOW foder, "Perfect Little Angels" is actually not a bad little suspense thriller once you get into it. Some great looking young Canadian actors (especially Brendan Fehr as "Mitch", who acts as good as he looks), and a solid performance from TV staple Cheryl Ladd make this "Disturbing Behaviour" rip-off watchable. The story revolves around mind control in the tightly knit, upscale suburban community Elesium Meadows, where every home is perfect, every mother is June Clever and every teenager is Ken or Barbie. Enter new comer Justine (Jody Thompson, who's performance is, at best, uneven), and her mom (Cheryl Ladd), a recently fatherless family looking for a new start. Justine is immediately approached by the Elesium Meadows gang, led by Brad (Jade Pawluk, a perfect, plastic doll). This group of Gap clad teens are perfect to the point of nausea and begin stalking Justine in order to make her perfect as well. Justine also befriends Mitch (the afore-mentioned Fehr), an outsider who hates the Elesium kids and does his best to keep Justine from them. Oh yes, there's also a mad scientist, Dr. Lawrence (once classy actor Michael York, who phones in his performance here), who feeds everyone vitamins that are also mind control devices that somehow link up to a radio tower in his back yard. Actually, when writing this out, it all seems pretty silly, but it actually works on the small screen as Justine and Mitch rush to defeat the evil doctor and his plans for neighbourhood domination. Once again have to mention the stand our performance of newcomer Brendan Fehr. Very good looking, his every move on screen is a pleasure to watch. This kid has star written all over him. Tim Bonds direction is OK, and the technical aspects of the film are pedestrian. 6 out of 10, but only because of Fehr.
