Sixteen-year-old Julie really loves her daddy, Harold; however, mommy Irene is a different story. She's neurotic and possibly suffering from a mid-life crisis that's led her to blame her marital problems on Julie. To rid herself of this problem, she's convinced her husband to ship Julie off to boarding school, much to her dismay. However, fate intervenes in the form of a lascivious grocery boy, Weston attempts to rape her and ends up killing her. But her daddy soon has a new flame, Susan who might end up as her new stepmother...but not if Julie has anything to say about it.

Unpleasant yet satisfying ..........
24 May 2012 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Isabelle Mejias has the ultimate Daddy fixation, and Stepmothers who get in her way become expendable. The object of her attention, Anthony Franciosa, seems oblivious, clueless, or both, to his Daughter's unnatural behavior. The methods employed by Mejias to torment Stepmothers borders on sadism. While the script is sometimes clever, it also has a brutal amount of time wasted on small talk not relevant to the story. Sybil Danning and Isabelle Mejias give good performances, while Anthony Franciosa is so boring, you will almost cringe. "Julie Darling" is an effective thriller that could have benefited from some script tightening, however the extremely satisfying ending totally redeems any minor faults the film might have. - MERK
