Jamie Gillis at his darkest!
3 July 2012 | by (The Flip Side...) – See all my reviews

I saw this film some 25 years ago on an old VHS copy, and was blown away by the darkness vision of this film... This has to be one of Jamie Gillis finest roles, and his most dark that he has ever done...

The story is of Gillis is a hit-man who hides out in a sleazy hotel after getting caught having sex with the bosses wife... While holed up he has visions of his past and the road to the hell he is at currently... There is also a secondary story of a prostitute that stays with Gills, and she also has visions of her past and her road to this murky dark place...

The film is excellent... the vision is dark, murky and well acted by the cast... The sex is not erotic, but not sleazy either... it is more poetry of the twisted images that play out as the characters continue on a downward spiral into oblivion with perhaps the most disturbing ending you'll ever see in a porn film...

Only one issue... the ending is different than I remember the last time I saw it... It plays out pretty much like I remembered, but I believe that it may have been edited by a few moments which does ruin what was a disturbing ending... The film is still recommended...
