Storyline

After a troubled year in school, Jodi is informed by her teacher, Ms. Hemp, that she will recommend to Jodi's father that the girl be sent to a special boarding school next year. Horrified at the thought of being separated from her beloved father, Jodi does what any young child in the same situation would do: she sneaks into the school the next day when nobody is there but Ms. Hemp is there and brutally murders her by crushing her with a bookcase so Ms. Hemp can't meet with her father. Well, maybe Jodi isn't like the other children. As other people start to come between the girl and her father, they also meet similar fates. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

May become a camp classic.
23 July 2003 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Everything about this movie - from the script and dialogue to the performances - is hilariously unsubtle. The girl's "evil" performance doesn't ring true for a minute (she squints her eyes and makes faces to show she's angry, and she makes Freddy Krueger-ish wisecracks right after her killings - "Divorce this!", "You're dead meat", "Goodnight grandma", that sort of thing). If almost every character in the movie wasn't a complete moron, there wouldn't have been a movie - they would have realized the plainly obvious and punched the little brat in the face! Nonetheless, as bad as this movie is, it is directed with a certain professionalism that at least keeps it watchable. (**)
