Page is an actress that can convincingly play someone much younger than she really is. Although it wasn’t much of a stretch in this film, as she was 17 during filming. Her shy girlish demeanor quickly transforms into the smart, badass chick that physically and mentally tortures Jeff. You could say in some scenes that Jeff could easily overpower Haley and take back control, but what can he do, she’s only 14. No matter how you look at it, it’s going to end badly for Jeff.
There is one disturbing scene where guys everywhere will cover their eyes and run away screaming. Haley decides to castrate Jeff to teach him a lesson; this is a difficult scene to watch no matter who you are. Does she really go through with it? You’ll have to watch. The back and forth between these characters is what elevates this film into something more than your average revenge fantasy film. The only problem I have with it is the ending. I can see how they arrive at it, but don’t really agree with it. They never really tell you who Haley really is and her motivations for are kind of alluded to but are still kind of fuzzy. This film is an intriguing little nugget that should be seen.
