My most favorite of favorite movies finally gets a review-by me. Nick Eliot has everything going for him. A new job and a new place to live: the guest house of the upperclass Forrester family: dad; Cliff, mom; Liv and 14 year-old-daughter; Adrian. Everything is perfect. But that's about to end very soon. When Nick meets Adrian, it was love at first sight. For her anyway. She gives him gifts and tries to seduce him. He is obviously clueless to her obsession. One night at a party of the Forrester's, Nick drives Adrian out to a lighthouse where she kisses him. He suddenly realizes that this can't happen and she's had a "thing" for him all along. Nick gets a job at Pique magazine: a semi-tabloid. He meets Amy Maddik there, a photographer for the mag. They become an item. This becomes a dangrous problem to Adrian, who has been seemingly rejected by Nick. After he finds out that Adrian has broken into his house, scratched the word "cocksucker" onto his car and snoops around the place, Nick decides to leave. That doesn't mean he can. Adrian's friend, Cheyenne knows about Adrian's bad side. But before she tells Nick, she fell off her horse that was rigged by none other than: Adrian. Adrian discovers that Nick and Amy have slept together and the next day, Amy is discovered almost dead in her blackroom from thousands of bee stings....and Adrian is the obvious culprit. Adrian invites Nick to her horseshow where she will be performing. After he doesn't show, she appears at a public event hosted by Pique magazine where she slaps him in the face infront of everyone and saying "Too busy kissing ass to care about me, Is that it?". He takes her outside and tells her to stay away from him and there is nothing between them..... As Nick drives home from the event, there is a swarm of police cars and officers at his house: they say that Adrian said he raped her. He is taken to a police station and is released on bail. He was told that Adrian is up somewhere in the mountains with her family and he can go back to the house to get his things. That is where the real cat-and-mouse game comes into play. Adrian has escaped and returned to the house to get her one true love. An interesting thing for horror fans to note: Amy Maddik is played by Jennifer Rubin: She plays former druggie Taryn in Nightmare On Elm Street 3. (NOTE: Since I am reviewing the DVD version of THE CRUSH, the name of Alicia Silverstone's character Darian has been changed to Adrian because it was based on an actual event...)
