My Super Psycho Sweet 16 Part 3 Examiner.com movie review, Written by: Karen Benardello
Adults are often critical of the excesses and entitlement teens from wealthy families feel while growing up, as seen with the critical panning of the MTV reality series ‘My Super Sweet 16.’ The new second sequel to the network’s hit original scripted movie ‘My Super Psycho Sweet 16,’ which New Yorkers can see when it premieres on Tuesday, March 13 at 10pm, proves that teens from unideal backgrounds can be the most successful. Lead character Skye Rotter, who survived the killing sprees committed by her father in the first two films, showed that being a social outcast doesn’t have to stand in anyone’s way of happiness.
‘My Super Psycho Sweet 16 Part 3’ picks up two years after its predecessor leaves off. Skye (played by returning series star Lauren McKnight) has moved on from the Rollerdome and Boneyard massacres committed by her serial killer father, Charlie, in the first two films. Skye has picked up a ride to college in New York City from fellow art student Sienna (portrayed by Jillian Rose Reed). Along the way, Skye finally receives a call back from her sister, Alex (played by fellow returning series actress Kirsten Prout), asking her to stop at her house on her way to school.
While Skye is reluctant to visit her sister at first, Sienna convinces her it would be a good idea to see her. But little do they know that horror awaits them at the impromptu Sweet 16 party Alex is throwing for herself. Alex’s neighbor Nathan (portrayed by Ryan Sypek), who is obsessed with Charlie and his two daughters, brings Skye and Sienna to Alex’s house when they get lost. Once there, he unleashes terror as he kills Alex’s friends to become closer to the Rotter girls.
‘My Super Psycho Sweet 16 Part 3,’ which was once again helmed by series director Jacob Gentry, uniquely pays homage to classic teen slasher films as ‘Prom Night’ with its strong, independent female lead character. Skye is determined not to let her father’s heinous crimes stand in her way of happiness at school in New York and with her boyfriend Brigg (played by fellow series alum Chris Zylka). Having survived the massacres from the first two films, she has learned not to allow anyone else’s opinions about her negatively impact her life.
