With her parents dead, an already unstable teenager embarks on a blood-soaked journey of torture, violence, and retribution, as everyone unlucky enough to cross paths with her ends up dead. Is the brutal Sick Girl capable of mercy?
Seriously messed-up young gal Izzy isn't having an easy time of it: Both her parents are dead, her older brother Rusty is fighting overseas in Iraq, and she has to raise her younger brother Kevin by herself. Moreover, Izzy lets off steam by not only killing people, but also by torturing several folks she has tied up in the barn right next to her house. After catching a trio of bullies picking on Kevin in school, Izzy blows a gasket and embarks on a vicious rampage.Written by

A rat gives the most convincing performance.
With both her parents dead, and her older brother Rusty (Chris W. King) serving in the marines, Izzy (Leslie Andrews) is left to raise her younger brother Kevin (Charlie Trepany), with a little help from a family friend, biker Barney (John McGarr). In her spare time, Izzy enjoys torturing and killing anyone who gives her or Kevin a hard time.
While Sick Girl does its very best to be extreme and shocking, with Izzy urinating on a nun, killing children, harbouring incestuous desires, hacking off a bloke's todger, and raping a girl (via the use of a makeshift strap-on), the effect is seriously undermined by flat direction and some of the worst acting imaginable, with Leslie Andrews leading the way with a particularly dreadful central performance, her lines delivered in a monotonous drawl that robs even the most intense moments of their power to disturb.
It says a lot about how bad this film is that Fright Night actor turned gay porn star Stephen Geoffreys — who has a supporting role as Kevin's teacher Mr. Putski — subsequently returned to the world of man-on-man XXX movies (with Three Dicks Are Better Than One 3). He probably found it less embarrassing
