ON JUNE 21ST, SCREAM FACTORY REMINDS US THAT A CRUSH CAN BE KILLER, WITH THE BLU-RAY DEBUT OF ALAN SHAPIRO'S "THE CRUSH!"
Though I am a bit surprised that this film is now part of the growing Scream Factory catalog, I am definitely eager to revisit it. I myself had a crush on Alicia Silverstone back in the day!
Film Synopsis: A man who should know better. A much younger teenager. No way should there be any kind of romance between them. Yet from the moment 14-year-old Adrian met Nick, she was crazy about him. There must be something she can say or do. Some way she can show him this is not just a crush. What can she do? What won't she do?
A captivating tale of obsession and revenge, THE CRUSH stars Cary Elwes and Alicia Silverstone in her breakthrough role. When Nick (Elwes) moves into a garage apartment in a picturesque suburb, his landlady's daughter (Silverstone) takes more than a passing interest in him. Her infatuation turns violent when he rejects her, and she sets out to ruin him, his work and his girlfriend. If she can't have him, no one will.
Romantic obsession has harrowing consequences in ‘90s cult-classic, suspense thriller THE CRUSH, written and directed by Alan Shapiro (FLIPPER , TV’s The Outsiders) and starring Cary Elwes (SAW, THE PRINCESS BRIDE, TWISTER), Alicia Silverstone (CLUELESS, BATMAN & ROBIN), Jennifer Rubin (BAD DREAMS, SCREAMERS) and Kurtwood Smith (TV’s Agent Carter, That ‘70s Show, ROBOCOP).
