The best Erotic Thriller I have ever seen!!!!!!!!
7 June 2004 | by (Rancho Cucamonga,California) – See all my reviews

C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders, That Night) plays as Oscar Bonsetter a punk that gets arrested for shop lifting. When he goes to jail his dying cell mate Mac tells Bonsetter were a massive fortune of money is hidden. But first Bonsetter must kill the man who gave Mac his fatal injuries Tom Gully. After three years Bonsetter is free and discovers that Tom Gulley is know blind. But there is one thing that is stopping him from killing Tom, his wife Rose, played by Joan Severance (Dangerous Indiscretion, Illicit Behavior).

This is a thriller that keeps you at the edge of your seat through most of movie, and a very pleasing sex scene on top of a car! Overall this movie is great and I give it a 10.
