Sloan McBride is a rock star from the 80s who, though her career is slowly going down the tubes, is trying to keep her head above water. Jenny is a young girl who worms her way into Sloane's life seeming the innocent assistant and turning into her worst nightmare. Jenny is secretly out for revenge on Sloane for ruining her mother's career as a singer and causing her to commit suicide. Jenny will stop at nothing to make a fool out of Sloane and is willing to even kill for the change to get closer to her. Will Jenny get the revenge she so desires? Or is her revenge unfounded in delusion? Written by Virginia Castagno <musicaltheaterbabe@hotmail.com>

Now called "They Shoot Divas, Don't They?"
8 October 2002 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this on VH1 the other night with the new title "They Shoot Divas, Don't They?" Whether that was to distinguish it from the pretty bad movie, "Slow Burn" with James Spader and Minnie Driver, or to tie-in with VH1's "Divas" I leave for you to decide. It is a pretty standard psycho with an agenda flick that happens to be set in the music business. Jennifer Beals plays Sloan McBride, a Cher-like diva on the brink of turning 40 and desperate to have another hit in a market driven by teen Britney wannabes. Through a series of seeming coincidences, she gets a new personal assistant who is the abovementioned psycho with an agenda. The body count is pretty low-- just two or three, I think-- and the splatter is kept to a minimum (it is a movie for TV, after all), but it's reasonably well plotted and directed and it does seem to at least have a passing acquaintance with the contemporary music biz. Beals is the best thing about it though. It's worth seeing.
