GIRLFRIEND FROM HELL
There are some bad performances in particular, from James Karen and Ken Abraham as the party animal Rocco. As the Devil chaser, Dana Ashbrook, a notoriously bad over-actor at the best of times, goes way beyond his usual histrionics and emerges as obnoxious. (There does seem something fundamentally wrong when the side of God is represented by a rampant womaniser who spends most of the film trying to convince other mens women to commit adultery with him and who ends up defeating The Devil with subterfuge, outright lies and false promises). On the other hand, Liane Curtis makes an amusing swap from complete wallflower to aggressive super-bitch abusing Christians, blowing her nose on someones sweater and coming after her victims with challenges like Im coming to get you so get really scared.
Underlying the film one senses is an attitude toward women not far removed from Dana Ashbrooks character the dialogue makes observations like As it happens, when you treat a so-called tough woman like shit, she fell in love with me. There is also the underlying association that for a woman sexual liberation and aggressiveness and becoming a party animal is equal to possession by The Devil.
Director Daniel M. Peterson has made a number of other films of no particular distinction or notice. His only other genre effort was Vampire Knights (1988).
