If you like Sherilyn Fenn, this is a must see.
13 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is actually enjoyable! I enjoyed watching the fight scenes in the movie between the two rival gangs. The Trueblood brothers have great parts and little Chad Lowe makes a great first impression on you. He's the toughest of the two brothers, but holds a special place in your heart. The special effects weren't great compared to newer action films. The characters reminded me David Lynch's characters, especially the evil Billy "Spider" Masters. He had a very creepy part and watching it alone can be quite scary. Ok, so the real reason to see this film, is for Sherilyn Fenn. Her part is acted very well and the bathroom scene is very sexy! Get the DVD version, so you can pause and slow mo during this part because it flew by very fast.
