Incest Of the Worst Kind
30 August 2000 | by (NJ) – See all my reviews

I 1st saw Tom Berenger in this TV film & really liked him. I also really like Suzanne Pleshette. But I was appalled at the content of this film. Suzanne is his mother & she seduces him plenty. He refuses many times but ultimately gives in many times. Don't know what happened to his father. I gather she's a widow. SO why not find a new husband?? Leave your son alone! With things like this happening in real life & the sick outcome of it all, we don't need to see it in REEL life to get the picture! And this was made YRS ago!
