Storyline

15 year-old Molly is the best in her class in high school. Nobody suspects that the model pupil earns her money at night: as prostitute "Angel" on Sunset Blvd. The well-organized separation of her two lives is shattered when two of her friends are slain by a necrophile serial killer. She's the only eye witness and becomes a target herself. The investigating Detective Andrews helps her, not only to survive, but also to query why she keeps on humiliating herself and to stop it. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Genuine movie deserves better
30 October 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

What was it about this film that most critics felt the need to slam it so bad back in 1984. Being only 5 back then I don't know. Perhaps movies that make you think and understand make Americans switch off.

Yes this movie was sensationalistic and shamelessly unmerciful but I watched it right the way through and at the end wished to God I had taped it. Damn it. This was about two years ago and I am still waiting for one of the five British channels to screen it again.

The performances are raw and unhampered with. A male necrophilliac(John Diehl-Pre Miami Vice) preys on teenage 'poor little rich kid' prostitutes, in particular Angel (Donna Wilkes) who he's taken a liking to. He stalks her blue murdering most girls in sight so eventually she enlists the help of a cop (Cliff Gorman)to try and catch him.

It could have been handled a little more professionly by the director Robert Vincent O Neill (IE it may be low budget and 'independent'but never skimp on camera men, hand shots are a little shaky). But the movie uses the power of suggestion and it did genuinly creep me out. It deserves 10/10 for not succumbing to commercialism and remaining a poignant, if slightly flawed piece.
