A teenage girl develops a crush on her new neighbour and becomes violent where he spurns her advances.
It's all a rather predictable, unoriginal twist on the friend/girlfriend/flatmate/babysitter from hell formula which came out of the woodwork in numbers during the early 90's.
Notable for giving Alicia Silverstone her film breakthrough after appearing in a number of music videos, but aside from that it's all rather unremarkable.
4/10
