Did You Know?


Erin Brown's character is named Misty, which is a nod to the actress' alias for her erotic movies career, Misty Mundae. See more »


Ida Teeter refers to her landlady's granddaughter as a ladybug, the common nickname for the ladybird beetle. While most would ignore this, it seems doubtful that an entomologist would. See more »


Ida Teeter: It's bad enough she was saying those things about us, but Betty! Oh, geez, Betty. You were laughing
Misty Falls: So I was laughing. Big, flip, fucking deal, Ida. You are such a baby. I sat here all day, washing your dirty underwear, doing your dishes, and feeding your stupid fucking bugs, and you try to give me shit? That cunt down the hall is the one you should be mad at, not me, god damn it!

Lucky McKee is a future master; what a funny episode this was
22 January 2007 | by LoneWolfAndCubSee all my reviews

Much like Landis' Deer Woman, Lucky McKee goes for laughs over straight horror. Sick Girls stars Angela Bettis as Ida Teeter, a shy, lesbian entomologist. She doesn't do so well relationship wise as her apartment filled with bugs is quite off-putting. That is, until she meets Misty Falls (Erin Brown) her new lover who doesn't get creeped out by the bugs. Unfortunately she gets bitten by a bug sent to Ida, a very mysterious bug that changes people's personalities for the worst.

McKee is actually a lot like John Landis, mixing gory horror with hilarious comedy. This works on a lot of levels, the acting is great (I love Bettis, she is an excellent actress), the humour is actually funny, the gore sickening and the monsters big and ugly. This episode is highly recommended.
