Countries: USALanguages: English

Mary Ann Lovitt – also known as ‘Lovely’ – is out for revenge after her brother overdoses on drugs and drowns. There seems to be an inexplicable amount of drug consumption at the school, I have to say, with extraordinary behaviour such as mass brawling in the locker room and the teachers essentially just rolling their eyes. Anyway. Where was I? Lovely.

Yes, Lovely.

Lovely is angry, and starts working her way up the drug supply chain one link at a time. It’s a little reminiscent of Message from the King – which in turn was reminiscent of The Limey. Of course, this was nowhere near as good as Message from the King. But that’s the way these revenge storylines go, right? There’s always going to be a version that’s better. And I can assure you, there are a sh*t ton of revenge movies that are way, way better than this particular example. Because otherwise, you know, it wouldn’t have been the RiffTrax version that I watched.
