Legendary exploitation filmmaker Doris Wishman died in 2002 with this not-so-scary horror video mostly shot; it was completed four years later. A gawky, lonely teenager finds a magic amulet that promises her the ability to take for herself one physical feature of anyone she kills; after her parents die she starts using the amulet, with predictably bloody results and a neat final twist. It's rather mindless entertainment, and its commentary on overemphasizing women's looks seems obvious. But it's interesting for Wishman's strange, clunky pauses and weird cutaways to characters and objects—like it or hate it, it's got a personal style. 82 min.
