Two greedy coeds conspire with their guidance counselor.
WHY WE PICKED IT: A top-notch ensemble cast makes the sly, melodramatic material of this delightfully salacious, kitschy cult classic sing.
When manipulative teen socialite Kelly Van Ryan fails to attract the attention of her hunky high school guidance counselor, Sam Lombardo, she accuses him of rape. Sam is arrested, but then Kelly’s trailer trash classmate Suzie comes forward with similar accusations, and local police detective Ray Duquette is called in to investigate – only to quickly decide that the case may in fact be an elaborate set up.
