'Though short, yet tedious.

Filmed in the Hollywood Hills area and environs, this movie tells of an adventure occurring to Janet (Jamie Barrett), a young and appealing reporter for an unidentified Los Angeles region newspaper, and how journalistic ambition causes her to go too far. The plot includes an unplanned meeting between Janet and Corey (Tawny Moyer), a highly-paid lady of the evening, and a conversation with her recently acquired friend leads Janet to attempt creating a major feature article under her byline. This low-budget production calls for the young reporter to work undercover as a prostitute in a house under the aegis of Louis (Frank Annese) and, while in preparation for her new "assignment" she discovers evidence of murder and blackmail. Although apparently physically attracted to Louis, who is training her for a premiering stint as a scarlet woman, Janet quickly becomes aware that her new employer is not reticent about eliminating troublesome subordinates. When Louis and his henchman Frankie (James Daughton) begin to suspect the tyro hooker's motives for her fresh career choice, Janet realizes that she must work to not only obtain information, but to survive, as well. One sees here a storyline not terribly different from many others of its ilk and in itself not without interest, but the amateurish direction and generally shoddy production values leave the engaged artists open to carping. There is precious little character development, a point of view is missing as is needed editing, and some scenes are excruciating to watch due to erratic pacing by the director in his initial feature.
