The movie starts with the popular girls of [[HighSchool Reagan High]] fake-kidnapping one of their group, Liz Purr, as part of her seventeenth birthday, only to find when they arrive that she has choked to death on the jawbreaker that they used to gag her. AlphaBitch Courtney Shayne then leads the others to create an elaborate cover story that would paint Liz's death as an accident resulting from a kinky sexual encounter and get them off scot-free.

One of the girls, Julie Freeman, struggles to come to terms with what they've done and is summarily shunned by Courtney and her lapdog, Marcie Fox. On top of this, she is replaced by the geeky Fern Mayo who Courtney transforms into the glamourous Vylette in return for the girl's silence. But the attention lavished upon "Vylette" soon goes to Fern's head and she begins to encroach on Courtney's position as the Queen Bee, only to discover exactly why that was a bad idea as she is publicly humiliated. Meanwhile, when Julie is given a box of Liz's possessions, she stumbles upon something that will prove to be Courtney's downfall just as she prepares to accept the title of Prom Queen that Liz's death left her free to claim.

* ShrinkingViolet: Fern is your standard shy and quiet girl from High School that is not as beautiful as the GirlPosse and would be unnoticed by the crowd and the rest of her classmates. As a way to make her silent about Liz's death, Courtney convinces her to "transform" into a different person. And, oh, wow, this makes her more confident... and it works pretty well at its best, even with a name such as ''[[EvilIsSexy Vylette]]''.

* AccidentalMurder: Liz's cause of death? Being choked on with a jawbreaker that her friends (specifically, Courtney) used to gag her while fake-kidnapping her. The duct tape didn't help.

* WhatAnIdiot: Invoked in-universe, as this is pretty much Julie's reaction to Courtney upon learning she gagged Liz with a jawbreaker.

* TheSociopath: Does Courtney mourn Liz's death? Just a little. Does she care of incriminating an unknown loser whom she had sex with, just to confuse the police that ''she'' nor her "friends" were related to the case? Not a bit of remorse was even given.
