The Crush | 1993 | R | - 5.4.5

A 14-year-old (Alicia Silverstone), falls hard for a 28-year-old neighbor (Cary Elwes) and when her advances are frustrated, bad things start happening to the supporting cast.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A couple of bare buttocks (male and female) and long, sweeping camera shots of a teenager in a bathing suit. There is a titillating mood throughout, and lots of references to adolescent sex. There are a couple of kisses, and we see an adult couple in bed, presumably after having had sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A woman is stung by wasps, a teenager falls off her horse, a couple of scuffles (consisting of shoving and a couple of punches) and a couple of men are struck with a stick. There's very little gore, consisting of a teenager with a black eye and a split lip.

LANGUAGE 5 - Half a dozen F-words, and a few sexually explicit profanities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Under age sex, obsession and psychosis, rape.
MESSAGE - There's no way to reason with a manifestly homicidal psycho.
CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
