Jacqueline Hyde

"Terrible"

Jacqueline Hyde Review


Movies this bad are never usually this earnest, too. If the pun-tastic title didn't cue you off, Jacqueline Hyde is a horror flick that uses Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as its basis for a story. Only it's a chick. Get it?

Jackie Hyde (Gabriella Hall) is a demure, slightly chubby telemarketing staffer. But when she inherits a mansion, she finds some vials of red liquid secreted inside. Naturally, she drinks them, and she discovers the power to morph into whatever woman she wants -- whether that's the blonde girl across the street or the model in her lingerie catalog. It's the model she chooses to emulate the most, calling herself Jacqueline Hyde (Blythe Metz) and passing herself off as Jackie's sister.

Never mind that Jackie is short for Jacqueline, people around town never seem to find any of this strange. This allows Jacqueline to bed men (and women) and kill with abandon, an unfortunate side effect of the glowing juice.

The film is so badly made it's hysterical. It's not badly acted and clumsily produced in an Ed Wood style, but it's so incredibly stupid it challenges you not to actually turn it off at every turn. I reserve special disdain for the special effects, which consist of cartoons superimposed over the screen, spinning out at us whenever Jackie makes her transformation.

If you're interested in seeing Metz and Hall (star of such films as Deviant Obsession and Lust: The Movie) naked and copulating, this is your film. There's even 30 minutes of deleted scenes on the DVD. And no, none of them help any of this make a lick of sense.
