Girls will be girls, right?? That's the saying!! This movie is mixed with horror and Bad Girls Gone Wild. Only the bad girl gone wild is an actual girl, like an eight year old girl. She is absolutely crazy and completely sweet all at the same time. This is by far, one of the scariest movies I have ever seen.
This movie has a huge cast, and with a whole bunch of people you may or may not know. The movie was based on a stage play and the movie was made with pretty much the whole stage play cast.
The whole movie is based around this woman, Christine Penmark (Nancy Kelly), who seems to have the perfect life. She has a military husband named Col. Kenneth Penmark (William Hopper), a beautifully sweet and perfect little daughter named Rhoda (Patty McCormack), friends named Monica Breedlove (Evelyn Varden) and her brother Emory Wages (Jesse White). Christine's husband ends up leaving to go away to Washington D.C and leaves his wife, Christine alone with Rhoda. Which is usually okay, except that strange things keep happening. One day, Rhoda goes to a picnic with her classmates. She ends up losing a prize and gets awfully mad. The strange thing, her classmate that won, ends up dead!! He apparently drowned at the picnic. But how and why? The whole class was told not to go near the edge of the lake, and he did. That is Rhoda's story at least, and she's sticking to it. What really did happen to her classmate? Later on in the movie, the apartment houses cleaning man, Leroy Jessup (Henry Jones), who is odd, yes, but also seems to know too much about Rhoda, ends up dead as well. What is happening? And could all of these deaths be accidents? Watch to find out!!!
You will be surprised and definitely scared!!! I know I was.
