Bad Girls from Valley High (2005)40K
Bad Girls from Valley High: Directed by John T. Kretchmer. With Julie Benz, Nicole Bilderback, Monica Keena, Chris D’Elia. Three snobbish high school girls prematurely age brought on from a curse, a drug (or something) after the arrival of new transfer student whom they believe is connected to a murder they committed a year earlier. A fate worse than death.
“Having two actresses that I think are really good – Monica Keena (u0026quot;Dawsons Creeku0026quot;, u0026quot;Freddy vs. Jasonu0026quot;) and Nicole Bilderbeck (u0026quot;Cluelessu0026quot; and u0026quot;Bring It Onu0026quot;) intrigued me to watch this film – plus it seemed in the style of the fantastic u0026quot;Mean Girlsu0026quot;. Instead, the film was a bit of a let down, though it had some good moments. Julie Benz gets most of the screen time, and she is pretty decent, while Monica Keena and Nicole Bilderbeck are good, this is not their best work.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe rest of the cast didnu0026#39;t fare much better. Suzanna Urszulay was uninteresting as the new girl, Jonathan Brandis (R.I.P) was nice to look at, but rather bland, and Chris Du0026#39;Elia was only funny until he became annoying. Janet Leigh (R.I.P), gives, as usual, a terrific performance in her small role, though I wonder what she was thinking when she signed up for it. Christopher Lloyd is funny as the school teacher.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film seems to try a bit hard in places, and fails. It also seems of poor quality, for example, when the three girls are in the school, there isnu0026#39;t the usual back ground noise you would expect, and it is very noticeable. There are far worse films that one could watch, but there are far better ones also. Only the actors redeem this film.”
