A riveting look at a disturbed woman
1 May 2000 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This TV movie has stood the test of time. Suzanne Pleshette gives a phenomenal performance as the Queen of Mean, Leona Helmsley and Lloyd Bridges is terrific as well as her long-suffering husband. Even 10 years after it first aired, this movie effectively captures the demonic Helmsley's reign of terror, where no employee, including her own son, is safe.
