Thirteen women who were schoolmates send to a swami for their horoscopes. Little do they realize that Ursula, a half-breed Asian, is using her hypnotic powers over the swami and them to lead them or their families to their deaths. It seems that she too went to their school, but was forced to leave by their bigotry, and is exacting revenge. Will she be stopped in time to save Laura's son, Bobby? Written by Robert Tonsing <>

a beguiling movie
3 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just finished watching this film...decided to watch it mainly to see Peg Entwistle, the Hollywood sign girl. She sure didn't have much of a part, and after i read the suicide note of hers, i wondered how much of this movie (13 women) had an effect on her depression and plans for suicide.

Hard to believe that at such a young age, and with some promise, she'd throw it all away so fast. Earlier this year, I was in Hollywood and saw the house (still standing) that she lived in when she decided to end it all. It is quite a hike up to the sign from that house, and I imagine at that time, probably was a dirt road. She certainly had time to think about what she was doing, when she was climbing up there.

Also, I do recall a certain interview of Bette Davis, where she fondly remembers Peg Entwhistle...and said she was an unbelievable talent.

Anyway, that was a long long time ago, and sometimes, it seems silly to remember such an insignificant part of Hollywood history. The irony is, that her name will always be remembered the Hollywoodland Sign girl.
