Allie Holton ( Jennifer Rubin ) is a just a typical elementary school teacher turned supermodel. Somebody is trying to kill her.


Dylan Wiatt ( Peter Outerbridge ) is a freelance photographer and murder suspect. He's emotionally involved with Allie.


Evelyn Ash ( Sally Kellerman ) owns a modeling agency. She's also a libidinous-power-tripping-bitch.

The story begins with the murder of a fashon model.

We then meet Allie. She's an elementary school teacher at St. Veronica.

She's fired by her pompous and callous principal. Allie's crime? She had the audacity to care about a student's well-being.

Allie unsuccessfully, searches for a new job. She soon attracts the attention of an unemployed freelance photographer called Dylan.

Anyway, Allie reluctantly agrees to model for Dylan. Things go awkwardly at first. Soon feelings between Allie and Dylan begin to blossom, and this causes problems.

Evelyn hires Allie and Dylan.

Later that same evening, Allie finds her apartment has been trashed. She also finds a disturbing message written on a mirror. Evelyn calls the cops.

A few days later, a co-worker that assaulted Allie is found dead. Since Dylan left a threat on the man's answering machine, he is arrested.

After Dylan is released, more dead bodies start popping up. Guess what? All the victims had crossed paths with Allie. Is Allie the next victim? Is Dylan the murderer, or is Allie's estranged father to blame?....



QUOTES:
Allie: "Why does she keep producing disturbing pictures?"

Evelyn: "I said different Bruce, not disgusting"

Allie: "This doesn't involve nudity, does it?"

Dylan: "How about a nice cold glass of ketchup?"

Dylan: "You're Cinderella now, Allie... every girl's dream, and every guy's desire"

Evelyn: "Your career in fashon can be cut short with a remark like that"

Sgt. Teploe: "psychopaths like Bruce, they appear normal to everybody, even themselves"

DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
NO... This is a cool and fun flick, especially for a MADE FOR TELEVISION movie. Michael Ironside has a small role in this film. There's a lot of clich├ęs, but I don't care. All I know, is that it works. I like it for what it is. Jennifer Rubin does a great job, and she's extremely pleasing to the eyes.

It's a Canadian movie, so I don't know much about the film's history. I also don't know if any violence or nudity has been cut from the DVD. The video and audio quality is extremely good. The DVD came packaged in a cardboard envelope. As I read the back of the package, I noticed a sticker on the lower left corner. It's covering a UNIVERSAL STUDIOS logo. Why?... I don't know.

FYI: VICTIM OF BEAUTY is also known as DROP DEAD GORGEOUS.
