Poison Ivy is a 1992 thriller and drama film directed by Katt Shea. Andy Ruben (who also produced the film) transformed Melissa Goddard's story into the screenplay. It stars Drew Barrymore, Sara Gilbert, Tom Skerritt and Cheryl Ladd. The original music score is composed by David Michael Frank. This film was shot in Los Angeles, California.

It was nominated for the 1992 Grand Jury prize of Best Film at the Sundance Festival. Sara Gilbert was nominated for Best Supporting Female at the 1993 Independent Spirit Awards. Although it did not fare very well at the box office with its limited theatrical release, the film received favourable word-of-mouth, and became a success on cable and video in the mid 1990s. The film has spawned several sequels and is marketed with the tagline "What Ivy wants, Ivy gets." The most recent sequel, Poison Ivy 4: The Secret Society was released in Summer 2008.

The character Ivy was ranked as one of the top 26 "bad girls" of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
