Guess WHO?
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jennifer Rubin,(Allie Holton),"Road Kill",'99, gave a great performance as a very pretty innocent looking young gal, who is teaching in a Catholic School and simply loves her job and all the children. However, there is a photographer named Peter Outerbridge,(Dylan Wiatt),"Land of the Dead",'05, who is taking pictures of Allie and finds her very interesting and attractive to even become a model. Dylan contacts Sally Kellerman,(Evelyn Ash),"Open House",'04 who is the boss of a large model agency; Evelyn becomes interested in Allie in more ways than one. Allie seems to prefer men and woman to love and enjoy and desires to make Allie into an International Fashion Model. This film will keep you in suspense and it is not easy to find out who the naughty person turns out be.
