Teaching Mrs Tingle (1999)

Kevin Williamson directs Katie Holmes, Helen Mirren and Marisa Coughlan in this teen thriller where three high school students hold hostage the tyrannical teacher who threatens their future.

A disappointment after Scream 1& 2 and Dawson’s Creek. This feels very much like a little indie script that has gotten lost in the rewrites and reshoots. Holmes’ stock good girl gets hot’n’heavy in some lingerie, Marisa Coughlan is decent enough value but the story goes nowhere after the first twenty minutes and the remaining hour of this short movie feels interminable. The ending just aborts the entire concept for the sake of a swift wrap-up.
