A Complete Failure.
24 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

There are some movies where you might notice a poor script or inept acting and while this movie has both , it also has distractingly bad lighting and worse than amaturish make-up. There is a scene where the two-bit lighting and 99 cent store make-up lights up Barbara Carrera's acne like a like a Christmas tree. There's a reason this listing has no plot out-line. Anyone who watches it is so distracted by the sophomoric production values that the plot escapes them even if the script wasn't totally void of continuity. I'm actually a sucker for dumb old TV movies from this era but this movie displayed a remarkable break-down in movie making on every level. A bonafied turkey, and not the fun kind.
