The Vicious Sweet (1997) (DVD REVIEW)
Directed By: Ron Bonk
Starring: Sasha Graham, Jeffrey Forsyth, Roseanne Fortino

Popular scream queen Tyler Phenix had it all! A successful career, a nice house, a loving boyfriend named Charlie… and plenty of adoring fans! Her direct-to-video features were guaranteed hits each time out. And her exposure was extending well beyond the b-movie circuit – she was starting to raise the eyebrows of some of the major players in Hollywood as well! And then comes what should have been the greatest day of her life — a proposal of marriage from Charlie, and an offer to work with a critically renowned director. So why does she turn both offers down? Well, Tyler’s greatest fan is asking the same thing. He wants her to be a big star… He wants all the world to love her like he does… In his eyes, she is making all the wrong decisions. And unfortunately for Tyler, he might know exactly why she is doing just that… Zombies and monsters from her movies, as well as the demons from her personal past, take physical form before her as she confronts the path her life has taken in a horrific psychological battle of the wills with her captor.

Tyler Phenix is a popular horror movie star but something is off and isn’t right about her. She’s still got all she should want, but she’s starting to act very strange and it’s starting to affect everyone around her. She’s going all erratic before our eyes and I admit that it just reminds me that all things considered the movie’s star Sasha Graham is a pretty darn good lead in this one. And if you take one long look at her list of horror movies she’s been in, she’s got a lot of history in this type of stuff and she fits into these roles really well. And she has a bit of an interesting plot to work with here in this one, as it is really creative for what you usually expect from an SOV movie.

This one is a bit of a slow mover, but if you manage to sit there and watch what goes down for a bit you find yourself actually caring about what happens in the film. It is an interesting tale of a stalker fan that ends up being a bit of a fever dream where we can’t tell what is real and what isn’t. Theresa Constantine is the glue that holds this movie together as she does give it what life it does have in it. It takes skills to use a budget like this and make something that seems this watchable. As with all shot on video movies, this won’t appeal to a lot of folks, but it isn’t bad when you take all the elements of shot on video into consideration.
