Trivia

Julie Strain and Linda Blair are never seen together in the same scene. Coincidently, Julie Strain's first film appearance, as an uncredited nude woman in a locker room, was also alongside Linda Blair in Repossessed (1990) but they shared no screen time there either. See more »

Great female cast, mediocre movie
9 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

The female cast of this movie is terrific: you've got Linda Blair (maturing nicely), Julie Strain (who doesn't get too many speaking lines - that's a good thing), Rochelle Swanson (equally convincing as a sweet innocent girl or as an evil possessed girl), Toni Naples, and the most beautiful of them all IMO, the simply stunning Kristina Ducati (how the goofy male lead, Larry Poindexter, deserved to get sexually involved with any of these women remains a mystery). However, beyond the chance to watch these beautiful and in some cases talented women, the movie has little to offer. The plot is disjointed and doesn't really get going until the last 15 minutes or so; and when Wynorski finally manages to create some suspense, a ludicrous "twist" ending comes and ruins everything. (*1/2)
