Guncrazy is a 1992 American crime/drama/thriller film starring Drew Barrymore. It was directed by Tamra Davis and written by Matthew Bright. It is a loose remake of a 1949 film noir with a similar name.

Plot[edit]

A teenager murders her stepfather, a sexually abusive man, after he teaches her how to use a gun. Through a school correspondence course, she meets a prisoner, Howard, whom she seduces back into the world of violence and guns.

She marries Howard, and decides to show him the remains of her stepfather; Howard helps her dispose of the body. After they dispose of the corpse, Howard commits several homicides, although he was provoked in every instance.

Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

Todd McCarthy of Variety wrote that the film is "competently made" but "lacks the exhilaration of a first-class lovers-on-the-run crime drama".[2]
