Screaming Sunday: Sick Girl

By s. Monday, January 23, 2012 , , ,
Sati's movie rating - 75/100
Plot: A shy entomologist drawn into a tentative lesbian affair following the discovery of a mysterious new species of bug finds herself faced with a startling metamorphosis in "May" director Lucky McKee's creep-crawly entry into Showtime's terrifying Masters of Horror series. Ida Teeter's (Scream Queen - Angela Bettis) life revolves around bugs, and upon discovering a large unidentified crawler while simultaneously being drawn into a heated affair with a beautiful young woman named Misty (Erin Brown), the studious wallflower's personal and professional lives begin heating up like never before. It seems that the bizarre new insect has some fairly strange feeding habits, and when seduction leads to infection and bloodletting, the stage is set for a horrifying mutation that will find Ida identifying more closely with her insect subjects than ever before
The heroes: Shy and cute entomologist who loves her job and is crazy about bugs, finding her hobby to be a big turn off for possible romantic partners.
The antagonists: Mysterious, dangerous spider.
What makes it so great? The unique blend of "The Fly" inspired horror movie and cute romantic comedy.
Best scene: The ending.
Oh-oh something's not right line: "It's aggressive"
Scare factor: - 2/5 evil pumpkins - Full of shocking scenes and mysterious insect running around - the creepiest moment happening when it hides in the pillow.
Gore factor: - 3/5 bloody Leatherfaces - Bizarre gore moments dealing with mutations, more like "The fly" than for example "The Descent". It's not bloody - it's just very creepy.
Is there a twist? Yep.
Hint: Watch without your dog (or girlfriend) in the room.
Unsuitable for: Single women planning to date.
Repercussions: Fear of spiders and suspicious boxes sent to you via mail.
