Judy Landers Made This Movie Great
6 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This picture was released in 1989 starring Audrey Landers as Angela Reid, Her sister Judy Landers as Billie Blaine and John Matuszak as Chuck Aaron. Angela Reid is a writer who's having work done in her apartment building. Angela is having problems concentrating between all the pounding and dust that's floating around her apartment. So she goes to a Malibu beach house for peace and quit so she can get her story done. However, Angela start to her things and then she actually starts to see things. The ghost of Billie Blaine comes out of no where and no one can see her except for Angela. Enters Chuck Aaron who was hired to keep and eye on the place and he also is a big Billie Blaine fan. Billie wants Angela to help her prove that she didn't ****** ****** 30 years ago. Now a few thoughts on this movie! I loved this movie because it starred Judy Landers. I think Judy is one of the most beautiful actresses back in her time. She was excellent in playing the role of Billie Blaine. Based on Judy Landers alone I give this movie 10 weasel stars.
