My favorite horror movie of all time
22 December 1999 | by (seattle, wa.) – See all my reviews

Excellent suspense thriller/horror film. Sexy, sensual, kinky, and sometimes violent. Too bad the director died on the last day of shooting. This was his only film.It was available on VHS on the late 80's - early 90's on Unicorn Video. Perhaps one day it will be back in print!
