“What Ivy wants, Ivy gets.” Depraved teen seductress Drew Barrymore is the houseguest from hell in TFH Guru Katt Shea’s erotic psycho thriller, which didn’t pack them in on its limited theatrical release but became a big enough hit on cable and home video to spawn three exploitation-minded sequels. Blink and you’ll miss a young Leonardo DiCaprio in a bit part.
