Did You Know?


Shannen Doherty infuriated William Friedkin when she failed to turn up for the first day of shooting for Rebel Highway: Jailbreakers (1994) in Hollywood. As it turned out, she had just returned from Italy, where she raised hell by turning up late for an interview on a television talk show. Friedkin's first reaction was to call for auditions and look at 12 other actresses to take her part. He changed his mind and decided to stick with Doherty. See more »


Angel: I miss you so much, Tony. My life is dead out there without you.
Tony: Angel, I'm gonna get out I promise and we'll go away together just you and me. And we'll see the world, all those exotic places we talked about, huh?
Angel: I'll wait for you forever and ever. And I'll sneak out and visit you whenever I can.
Tony: I love you.
Angel: I love you.

well made for television movie
25 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this episode to be extremely well executed, which is expected since William Friedkin is at the helm. I saw it a while ago on television and i hated it, but now just watched it again on netflix and it's a well made little Friedkin film such as many of other episodes he's done for television (Twilight Zone, Tales from the Cript, and CSI). The film was well photographed, edited, acted and directed. It does carry his theme of the thin line between good and evil.

I would say it's a great teenage film. I can't believe Adrian Brodi was in this film as a teenager who went on to have a great career in films and winning an Oscar. Shannen Doherty...well I'm not sure what happened to her. William Friedkin went on to make some decent films (Rules of Engagement, The Hunted, Bug, Killer Joe), but Jade, well that's a different story.
