Movie review: Master's Of Horror: Sick Girl

In this Master’s Of Horror entry from Lucky McKee, a strange bug gets in the way of a lesbian affair between Ida and Misty. When a strange package arrives for bug lover Ida from Brazil, what she finds inside is the most unusual bug she has ever seen.  And when the bug bites Misty, their love affair takes on an unusual twist.

Movie review: MOH Sick Girl – 2006
Angela Bettis (Ida Teeter), Misty Mundae (Misty Falls), Jesse Hlubik (Max), Marcia Bennett (Lana Beasley).

Ida is nerdy bug lover with self-worth issues who seems to keep killing relationships with her obsessive love of bugs. Misty is a seemingly quiet and shy artistic type whose father was a bug lover. When they find they have crushes on each other the love affair begins and Misty starts to come out of her shell. But when the strange bug Ida got as a mystery gift escapes in her apartment and bites Misty, her personality starts to change.
There was some horror involved with the strange bug but not a lot. This was actually a great blend between mild horror, psychological horror, drama, and a bit of mystery. The plot activity surrounding the bug was expected but the twists thrown in with the lesbian love affair, discriminating landlord, and sender of the bug brought a multi-level plot that was very nice.

Performance by Bettis was pretty good but Mundae really stole the show in my opinion. She was right on the mark throughout the movie and very enjoyable to watch.  Plot development was very good with this one and generated good investment in the characters.

Special effects and camera work were well done, as were dialogue and sound.

I really enjoyed this MOH entry and think it is one of the better episodes in the series, well worth watching.

With some nudity and adult concepts, save this one for older teens and above.
