This takes place several years before Cruel Intentions (1999), back to when Kathryn first meets Sebastian, their sexual attraction to each other and their enjoyment in destroying the lives of their peers.

This film was originally a TV series based on Cruel Intentions (1999) titled "Manchester Prep" with three hour-long episodes filmed: the pilot (#1.1), Pretty in Plaid (#1.2), and Disfunction Junction (#1.3). They were scheduled to premiere on the Fox network in the fall of 1999, but the show was canceled before any of the episodes aired. The scene where Cherie has orgasms on the horse in Episode #1.3 reportedly outraged Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch. New explicit scenes and dialogue were added to footage from the pilot and the first two episodes to make this film. The plot was reworked to serve as a prequel to Cruel Intentions rather then a re-telling. See more »

Get out, all of you! And you can be damn sure that my mother's going to hear about this when she gets back.
No she won't.
What did you say?
I said you're not telling anyone about this. This was my idea. I ordered them to play cards.
And to drink Mother's prized 1939 Neuf du Pape?
Great year. Blitzkrieg, wasn't it?

This prequel, sequel, whatever it is, to the first Cruel Intentions is absolutely rubbish and no where near as good as the first one. Some of the scenes from Cruel Intentions 2 are taken from Cruel Intentions and they're absolutely useless and sick. Their was a twist at the end of the film which was absolutely pathetic. And, the acting was VERY poor. I didn't enjoy this 'film' one bit. 1/10.
