Poison Ivy: The New Seduction Review: This installment of “Poison Ivy” is far more seductive and sexual hardcore than the one with Drew Barrymore. In Poison Ivy The New Seduction, Violet (Jaime Pressly) is the sister of Ivy. Like who needs the diary of Ivy, this hottie is one fast learner. Her body is absolutely smoking. She got it all. Swimming in the nude, seducing everyone she encounters. Most of all Violet is a heavy sex goddess while Ivy is nothing more than a nymph. Joy Greer (Megan Edwards) lost her mom and the return of Violet would make her happy again. So why isn’t everyone happy? Because the maid has high suspicions about Violet’s motives. And was she right. Too bad it cost her life.
In Poison Ivy The New Seduction, Michael (Greg Vaughn) Joy’s fiance has his instincts as well as the maid, though it’s a shame that Violet gave him that lethal overdose. Joy was a fighter at the end, and she really vindicates herself from Violet lethal games. Just like tennis, she scores, only her game was much better if she wasn’t so preoccupied by problems. Poison Ivy The New Seduction showed a lot more skin than usual, and the plot gets thicker and thicker by the minute. A bigger keeper than the first, and it could pass as porn. If only if Joy could keep her emotions in check, everyone would live. And should have been wary of Violet in the first place of her return.
For all that, the young Miss Pressley looks damn good without any clothes on and even shows the makings of a fine actress, though one that still needed further training. When the story call on her to act crazy, Pressley clearly had no idea what she was doing. There’s also enough activity going on to keep the film from grinding to a halt and it only minimally insults the viewer’s intelligence. Michael Des Barres gives the yeoman’s performance you’d expect and Megan Edwards is awfully appealing, though even more awfully is never nude. Overall, Poison Ivy The New Seduction is watchable.
