Hmmm, good if you've got nothing better to do
22 October 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Dead ON is an erotic thriller, apparently. Its not really a thriller in the sense of the word, but it is quiet a decent movie. Matt McCoy plays hsi character very well and the acting is of a high standard despite the limited script they have been "blessed" with. It has a good plot and some really sleazy sex scenes, just what we are all looking for in a movie really. all up 6/10, worth a look if you like Matt McCoy, worth a look if you like soft core porno.
