I can't help but feel they're just trying to give us a sexy girl version of The Skulls.
Not terrible. Predictable
Poison Ivy in name only, the newest chapter of the series; Poison Ivy: The Secret Society has no relation to the previous films and doesn't really follow the formula. The story follows a country girl who goes off to college where a secret order known as the Ivies attempts to lure her in and corrupt her. The writing is terrible, especially the dialog, but it's not nearly as bad as the acting. The directing is also incredibly amateurish, and feels more like a daytime soap. Originally filmed as a TV movie, Poison Ivy: The Secret Society is a generic piece of tripe that has no edge to it.
"Poison Ivy 4" wasn't that bad. The old country-hick-comes-to-college-to-learn-the-ropes type of movie. A little like "Sydney White", except the bad sorority sisters are a bit sleazier.
First of all: I watched this movie on TV and missed the first 20 minutes or so. Therefore it might have been better than I thought. Perhaps something super entertaining and Oscar worthy happened...
Anywho, What I saw was awful. The acting and setting was good or at least alright. The plot was...odd. Nothing seems to happen very logically. The main character is very stupid and does a lot of stupid things. This is not the actress's fault (because her acting was not the problem).
Here's a good example: When she records the murderous confession, why doesn't she just quietly take it to the police? Why doesn't she use a tape recorder way earlier in the movie? Why does she join the society in the first place? Why doesn't she transfer to a non-insane people school? And come on! All that for an internship?! Imagine creating a complex, murderous web of crime, with incredible risk, over an internship! And why the hell was the ugly brunette Society leader chick believe everything the professor's son said?!!! ( She was waaaay too ugly for that role).
And it's a good thing that the other Ivy member (the prettier one) suddenly had a change of heart and decided to help Daisy for no logical reason.
On the other hand, this movie is great for men and young boys who are too afraid to buy porn.
