Decent movie, but hasn't the kind of story been seen before??
18 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this film on Lifetime & I could already predict everything about it. The basic synopsis is a teenage girl falls for her teacher from school & after a while becomes obsessed with him & goes to enormous measures to make him hers. Megan Park does a pretty good job at playing the alluring villain, but like I said, it's been done before. This film was so much like The Crush (the film with Alicia Silverstone from 1993) that it lacked very little surprises or suspense & very well could have been called The Crush 2. But, as I said before, this film, even though predictable, is still rather enjoyable with some pretty good acting & is a good way to waste a couple hours in front of the TV, just don't expect very many surprises in this Made for TV thriller.
