During the opening sequences, a college student is seduced by his college professor. After that, it is disclosed that her husband has concocted a devilish scheme to steal millions from an inheritance fund run by his dotty grandmother and totally nasty mother.

I've seen worse....
4 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

The voluptuous Sybil Danning is apparently considered to be the chief attraction of this film for most viewers, but the plot also holds some inherent interest as a murder mystery. Unfortunately, the film is visually ugly and murky, and it's further hampered by a totally arbitrary, out-of-the-blue resolution. (**)
