Back when Drew Barrymore was still recovering from a pre-teen stint in rehab (and her subsequent years of typecasting as the ultimate “bad girl”), she made the 1992 cult classic comeback hit POISON IVY. Starring as the titular Ivy alongside Sara Gilbert and Tom Skerritt, Barrymore underwent one of the juiciest aesthetic transformations ever captured on film: From a sexy, trashy biker jacket, a fried bleach job, and underage tattoos, to voluminous blowouts and sophisticated evening/suicide gowns, Ivy’s evolution inspired viewers to pick up the red lipstick and learn how to French twist. Perhaps the finest guilty pleasure of its kind, relive the creepy Drew/Tom sex scenes and the awe of a teenage Barrymore’s alabaster beauty on the big screen where it belongs!
