Movie Info

This third installment in the meretricious Poison Ivy series explores a different branch of Ivy family tree. Jaime Pressly stars as Violet, sister of Ivy, who returns to the home of the Greer family. As little girls, Violet and Ivy were traumatized when they were forcibly taken away from the Greer home and their best friend Joy -- after their housekeeper mother was discovered in an affair with the head of the household, Ivan Greer (Michael Des Barres). Now it's eleven years later and the widower Ivan, his grown-up daughter Joy (Trishalee Hardy) and new housekeeper Mrs. B (Susan Tyrrell) welcome the gorgeous, post-adolescent Violet back with open arms. Just like her sister, however, Violet is a scheming tramp and home-wrecker. She quickly shares cocaine and sleeps with Joy's sexually frustrated boyfriend Michael (Greg Vaughan) and seduces Ivan with a topless dip in the pool. When those around her begin to suspect that Violet has less than honorable intentions, she turns homicidal, murdering the Greers one by one, to Joy's horror.

Critic Reviews for Poison Ivy - The New Seduction

All Critics (4)

  • Susan Tyrrell, an Oscar nominee for her supporting role in 1972's Fat City, offers the most inventive acting as the family's suspicious maid; everything else about this soapy drama is rote and predictable.

Audience Reviews for Poison Ivy - The New Seduction

    Introducing Jaime Pressly, Poison Ivy: The New Seduction is a deliciously trashy exotic thriller. In the wake of Ivy's death her sister Violet returns to her childhood home and the surrogate family of her youth, but before long her obsession with them turns deadly. Pressly exudes sexuality and has a lot of charisma. She also does an especially good job at playing psychotic (which is often difficult). And, the gratuitous sex sets a tawdry, salacious tone; which kind of works. Though it's cheap and exploitative, Poison Ivy: The New Seduction is a fun guilty pleasure.

    Jaime makes quite an impact in her first and most memorable role playing the teen femme fatale to perfection in a C Movie that has no other redeeming features save that it is quite professionally shot. A resounding "Yes !" if you're a Jaime fan - an equally resounding "No !" if you're not (guess which camp I fall into).

    I've only seen the original one before this and since it was on 'instant que' on Netflix, I decided to give it a go. It wasn't too bad of a movie. It's starring Jaime Pressly who plays Violet, a young woman who returns to the home where she used to live with her mom and another family. Her mother was the maid there and after a certain incident, the maid and her girls were kicked out of the home. The original family still lives there and Violet sneaks her way into the family's life and screw them up slowly.

    Seriously, this was one of the most craptacular movies I've ever seen. I had the urge to turn it off halfway through (but I didn't because I don't leave movies unfinished). Honestly, this was like a bad fan fiction made into film. I think the little snippet of back-story was nice, showed where Ivy came from and all. However, the first movie made no mention of a sister. Another fact that the filmmakers for this movie (as well as those who made Poison Ivy 2: Lily) neglected to remember, is that Ivy was NOT said character's real name! The acting of every cast member was dull, the plot line pointless, and a lot of things went unexplained. It was also pretty much just a "nudie film." Take out all the nudity/sex scenes and you have ten minutes of plot, tops. I gave this film a 2/5. One star because it exists, the other because it has naked people in it.
