Poor movie but with a very sexy Deborah Harry
24 September 2004 | by (Casablanca) – See all my reviews

Bellow average thriller starring Deborah Harry as a phone sex operator that one night receives a call in which an obsessed client murders a woman and tells her that she is next. The police don't believe her but a uniform cop hoping to crack a big case offers to help and so the investigation begins.

The only thing worth your time is Deborah Harry doing phone sex. There are two long scenes in which we see her character at work and I must say that even though the dialog was obviously scripted Harry's voice and acting are a pleasure to hear and watch. In conclusion: she's hot.

Other than that the movie is a bad attempt at a semi erotic thriller but don't expect sex or loads of nudity. It's not even a decent whodunit because the killer is not any character that appears during the movie.

James Russo is awful as always and the story is badly built and by the halfway point just looses any sense. In the end things just get ridiculous.

So if you're a big fan of Deborah Harry or a phone sex addict this is your movie. If you actually want a good movie look elsewhere.
