In the seedy part of Los Angeles, a man who writes poetry has spent six months without leaving his apartment because of his paranoid delusions involving sadistic doctors, rappers, and spiders. A woman who seems to jinx things by wanting to help is dumped by her boyfriend and finds herself penniless on the streets, and soon runs afoul of a local gang. Due to a telephone glitch, the man calls her at a phone booth trying to dial a "talk line" and invites her to his place. There they must help each other to overcome their respective problems.

Well, if this movie is the "epitome of Sam Raimi films", it's some kind of weird coincidence, because this is not a Sam Raimi film.
Moving on, this movie is probably really only worth watching if you're a hardcore fan of someone who's in it. I saw it for Bruce Campbell. Frankly, there aren't really any redeeming qualities. The actors all do decent jobs with what they're given, but the movie just feels really dull and empty, like it doesn't really warrant a whole movie. It also reeks pretty badly of the early '90s, which is either a reason to watch or avoid, depending on who you are. At any rate, unless your local rental store is pretty amazing, you'll probably be hard-pressed to find this movie save by spending upwards of 70 dollars to buy it online. It's definitely not worth the 70 dollars. Bruce Campbell doesn't really even get to do anything particularly Bruce Campbell-ish. No snappy one-liners or anything.
Anyway, if by any chance your girlfriend buys you this movie for your birthday, you might as well watch it since it came your way. Also watch out for the whole differing religions thing, it might be a problem in another three months.
