Storyline

Adrien Williams enters the "in crowd" when she is hired by a posh East Coast country club and befriended by Brittany Foster, the charismatic leader of a clique of wealthy college students who are home for the summer. Brittany takes Adrien under her wing, attempts to show her the benefits of the good life and introduces her to other members of her inner circle, including the object of Brittany's affection, tennis pro Matt Curtis. When Matt shows an interest in Adrien, Brittany begins to reveal her dark side and Adrien slowly starts to learn that Brittany and her pack of friends will do anything to protect their circle and the dark secrets they harbor.

Alternate Versions

The European Special Edition DVD is 12 minutes longer than the original version of the movie which was released in theaters and in the American DVD/video, and contains several scenes which were originally cut for nudity, sex or violence (so the movie could obtain a 'PG13' rating). The four main scenes in the Euro edition that are not in the original version are:
  • 1. A sex scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and the doctor (Daniel Hugh Kelly). Susan Ward strips fully nude, the doctor performs oral sex on her, then they have sex.
  • 2. A lesbian sex scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and Kelly (Laurie Fortier). Susan strips Laurie to her underwear and performs oral sex on her, before murdering her.
  • 3. A topless scene where Brittany (Susan Ward) goes to Adrien's (Lori Heuring) room to change her shirt. The two girls have a conversation while Susan Ward is topless, then she is seen getting dressed.
  • 4. A longer and more violent version of the catfight scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and Adrien (Lori Heuring).

Fascinating Gunk
15 December 2001 | by thinkbachSee all my reviews

Sloppy, bad movie. But, and it's a big but, it is a curious glimpse of how mind-bogglingly oblivious some people can be to how lucky they are, of how treacherous young women can be when it comes to their territory, of how stupid young men can be, of how a social group can be seen as responsible for the abuses of one individual within that group, especially when that group is the one in power.

But, and this is another big but, there are far more satisfying explorations of such topics, that offer something beyond prurience.

Too bad, because I have been hopeful of Mary Lambert ever since Pet Sematary which, though not a highwater mark in any genre, did explore in a gratifying way how deep people's needs and wants can run, and how that can sometimes manifest in absolute and utter resentment within and between the sexes.

It also had a neat sense of humor underlying it all, which does not always balance well in a horror flick.

Come on, Mary, where's the good stuff?
