Great Erotic Fun....
12 April 2004 | by (Gateshead) – See all my reviews

.....Well i'm a fan of Zalman King and he didn't disappoint me with 'Lake Consequence', I loved it, the gorgeous brooding Billy Zane and the beautiful Joan Severence, great erotic scenes to brilliant music. I think Zalman King is a genius, he knows how to tune into peoples fantasies, men and women, he always casts beautiful people (Billy Wirth and Sherilyn Fenn to name but a few) and there's so much nervous tension throughout the film it's great! I have 2 soundtracks from his movies and they're fantastic too, I can't believe the rating for this is so low...if you like 'Red Shoe Diaries', 'Two Moon Junction' and of course '9 1/2weeks' then i'm sure you'll love this!
