reviews (click and scroll down) it received were so undeservedly negative. No great shakes, LOVE SICK LOVE still manages to tread an unusual path between dark comedy and something akin to terror/horror, while remaining on its feet, if not its toes. Well acted and directed and competently written, the movie has a professional sheen and is never hard to watch. In fact, it'll keep you guessing about which direction it will finally choose to take.
Ryan Oxford and directed by Christian Charles (shown at right), the movie offers us both an anti-hero and anti-heroine at odds with each other. Neither is very likeable in ways that bring to the fore dating and mating habits of today's men and women. Yes, the guy wants to constantly play around and never commit, while the gal just want that commit-ment, come hell or high water. To that end, she has devised a plan, little of which will be given away here. When that plan goes into action (it involves not just our young woman but some other relatives too), things get crazier and more fun.
