Don't "Screw" Ramrod!
27 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Wings Hauser's portrayal of a no-nonsense pimp is one of the great villain performances in movie history. I agree with the positive comments by the others folks reviewing this classic B-Movie. I am fortunate to own a laser disc of this film, but hope it will someday be released on DVD. As an additional note of praise for this movie, it portrays the "work" of prostitutes in a sympathetic manner detailing the activities of Season Hubley in a single night servicing the "needs" of her clients. This movie contains perverse humor, terror, suspense, and a riveting conclusion. Highly recommended on all counts.
