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.


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.



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]
