Eighties trauma drama extraordinaire.
22 May 2001 | by (Reno, NV) – See all my reviews

I cant' believe I remember this movie all to well from back in 1985! It seems just like yesterday. Very gritty and very realistic. I remember being scared to death by this when I was a pre-teen. An excellent book called Seeing Through the Eighties by Jane Feuer references this movie several time. Excellent
