Sick Girl (2007)

A psychologically mangled teenage girl embarks on a violent rampage after a trio of bullies target her younger brother for torment in director Eben McGarr's blackly comic indie shocker. Young Izzy (Leslie Andrews) has issues; her parents are nowhere to be found, and when her older brother joins the military and leaves to fight in Iraq, she's forced to become the sole guardian of her younger brother Kevin. Thankfully, her motorcycle-riding pal Barney is always willing to lend a helping hand, but that still isn't enough to make Izzy's life stable. In order to blow off steam, Izzy frequently tortures people in the abandoned barn near her family home. Whether it's the young hooligans who won't leave her brother alone or a busload of Catholic schoolgirls who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, Izzy wastes anyone who gets in her way without a second thought. But her bad judgment hits an all time high when she bestows her younger brother the gift of a handgun, paving the way to tragedy and potentially destroying what's left of her family. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Theatrical Feature Running Time: 79 mins
Sick Girl (2007)
Well after Izzy's brother takes her life, then there was nothing left of the family anyway as the older brother dies in Iraq that causes her to go off the deep end. We see the flashback of the officers delivering the news close to ending credits.

Basically a sick film and somehow I thought it seemed interesting when ordering it. When she went after innocent boys then the film turned to the just gratuitous violence of horror films.

Rating of 1/2 for just being sick.
