When pretty but troubled Kaye moves to New Orleans from Atlanta with her mother and little brother, she forges a special friendship with Emily, a rebellious high school senior with troubles of her own. They become instant best friends, and begin spending all their free time together. Emily even helps Kaye run away from home. The girls' mothers do not approve of their relationship, and Emily's mother accuses her of associating to closely with a corrupted and confused young girl. As Kaye and Emily grow closer, Kaye's mother begins to suspect what she fears is the worse, that Emily's sexual prowess has corrupted her daughter. Faced with the ridicule from their peers, and the pressures of their families and conservative religious beliefs, Kaye and Emily are forced to choose between true love and the promises they've made to each other, and fitting into a society that refuses to accept them.

I loved Heavenly Creatures and make it a point to catch it whenever it is on.
So, imagine my delight when I discovered Love & Suicide while browsing NetFlix. Echoing Heavenly Creatures, an easy choice, to the top of my queue it went.
I watched it last, made myself comfy, and waited. What I thought was some crappy preview of a stoned high school student's prank film project (I laughed out loud once or twice, thinking "that just lowered the bar of straight to video") turned out to be the movie. Horrible acting, amateur direction, weak dialog. I usually enjoy low budget films, there is something tangible and real about them because they cannot afford the superficial stuff to distract from the "meat" the acting, the direction, the plot, the story. I would liken it to a student who hasn't studied for an exam goes in knowing he is going to fail and just puts his head on the desk and sleeps.
In someone else's hands the plot would have serious potential.
Do not expect magic or even a cult classics like, say, Divine's Polyester, or Showgirls, at least there you learn to expect bad acting.
Love & Suicide went from bad, to worse, to the WORST movie I have ever seen.
