The Crush (1993)
The story of yet another teenage girl (this one played by Alicia Silverstone in her first feature film role), The Crush is the tale of a teen crush gone very, very wrong when 14-year-old Adrienne (Silverstone) develops a crush on Nick (Cary Elwes), a writer who's renting the guest house on her parents' property. Nick befriends the lonely Adrienne, but backs off as her advances become more sexual... much to Adrienne's dismay.

In retaliation, Adrienne defaces his car, erases his computer disks (computer disks? how 90s!), and releases wasps into the vents to attack Nick's girlfriend. When none of this wins her Nick's heart, she accuses him of sexual assault... which goes just about as well as you'd expect. Silverstone is surprisingly scary in this role, despite being just a teen herself when it was filmed.
