Storyline

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.

Raimi, Raimi and Campbell, what more you need?
26 April 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The epitome of a Sam Raimi film, this movie is not for everyone. If you don't like Raimi's film making, stay away, but if you do you're in for a treat. Ted Raimi does a fine job as a quasi-sane recluse who just wants to be loved, but still has some psychological issues to work out.
