Quite harrowing - watch out guys

9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This girlfriend from hell movie is quite harrowing even though you know it's not a true story and it's a bit too much.

A totally whipped teenage boy played by Grant Gustin from Glee falls prey to the charms of a lovely but harmful and evil crazy girl played by the beautiful Jessica Lowndes. She gets him to cut school, get drunk, drugs him and tries to get him to kill himself. His hapless mother is played well by Annabeth Gish.

The filming location is quite attractive in British Columbia.

Maybe mothers should get their sons to watch this. A good warning for whipped boys, she's not worth it!

Dressed to Kill in High School

5/10
Author: wes-connors from Earth
8 September 2013

After the funeral of her boyfriend, sexy 17-year-old Jessica Lowndes (as Vanessa Lynn Redlann) is moved to another foster home. She enrolls in "Fairview Heights High School" and decides to seduce cute track athlete Grant Gustin (as Christopher "Chris" Stewart). Depressed about his parents' separation and recent break-up with his cheerleader girlfriend, Mr. Gustin is an easy conquest. He skips classes and practice to be with Ms. Lowndes. Gustin's mother Annabeth Gish (as Madeleine "Maddie" Stewart) is concerned about her young son's behavior. Investigating the situation, Ms. Gish makes some startling discoveries...

"A Mother's Nightmare" is the first part of a series of "Nightmare" movies from director/cinematographer Vic Sarin and writer Shelley Gillen. The stories are unrelated. This Lifetime TV Movie was "Inspired by True Events," according to the opening. If the character really exists, hopefully someone will see this on television and contact authorities because the ending suggests an additional incident may be imminent. Lowndes and Gustin are old for the roles, but pull them off. Her maturity makes seduction more believable. He has a cool hairstyle and cornered eyebrows. Gish should have been given a stronger confidante or lover.

That Fiendish Young Lady-Mother's Nightmare ***1/2

9/10
Author: edwagreen from United States
7 October 2012

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Jessica Lowndes is feverishly great here as a young girl, thrown from foster home to foster home, with suicidal tendencies-that is, she gets unsuspecting decent guys to levels and then makes it appear that they've killed themselves-while she herself has committed the dastardly deeds.

Her third victim in her sinister scheme is Chris, a 16 year old whose father has left the home due to alcoholism.

Vanessa, Lowndes, will lie, cheat and do anything in her never ending attempt to inflict guilt and mayhem among the guys she selects for ultimate death.

When Chris's mother interferes with her plans, she drugs him and then accuses him of raping her. At first, the police believe her story and the other high school teens shun him.

A powerful, suspenseful drama, very well realized by all. These films seem to have one thing in common. Even when caught, the vixen will attempt her evil ways again on some unsuspecting guy. Vanessa is no different in the institution she has been sent to.

oh my lord all this just too comment

Now although some of you's like the movie and story line and action I am sure is good. But what I myself don't agree with it is like when Chris and this chick meet they made it out like they have known one another lot longer than just meeting.

That didn't not make sense if this guy was being picked out than they should not have been that chummy that fast before even start going together and such.

How many more lines do you want me too type before I can post this message which is stupid all the requirement's you have too go through just too make a comment on a movie.
