Quotes

Willie Jay: [while Kevin asks him to help him file a lawsuit] Kevin, listen to me: if you want to get off, plead insanity. Try to get in to one of those sexual-psychopath programs and you'll be out in a year or two.
[Kevin goes angrily suspicious on him]
Kevin Coe: I would never lie about my sanity! Never! You know what the problem is? You think I'm guilty, Jay. Don't you? Come on, say it to your old buddy.
[Jay hesitates]
Kevin Coe: [shouts] COME ON, SAY IT!
Willie Jay: [remorsefully] I think... you're guilty, Kevin.

Elizabeth Montgomery and Dale Midkiff are WONDERFUL
18 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Not one of Elizabeth Montgomery's best films, but she delivers a wonderfully evil performance. Dale Midkiff is also great as the almost pitiful rapist. Both actors have been in better movies, but they still make this one well worth watching. The twisted relationship between mother and son alone makes for an interesting film. The fact that it was based on a true story makes it all the more frightening. I enjoyed it very much. Fans of Liz and Dale won't be disappointed. What lacks in the script is more than compensated by these two gifted performers. Ignore the negative comments here. We miss you Liz! Why are there not more EM films on VHS or DVD. At least this film is available now. Hopefully more to come! Lets get A CASE OF RAPE and LEGEND OF LIZZIE BORDEN on DVD!
