scalia...sexy and sinister
28 June 2005 | by (erby, england) – See all my reviews

this is a good example of the middle aged scalia escaping the cocky pretty boy hero stuff of his younger years. i have to say hes an actor (perhaps a gift too as a model), to age with dignity and still stay very sexy, but here given the chance to be sinister also..and he jumps from sexy to pure evil well, you wish he was your new boyfriend too...if it wasn't for the matter he kills and stalks !!!

an underrated TV movie classic, the plot wasn't new but it was given class and moments of inventive style. the other comments of the fact he has no reason to be the way he is, missed the chat he had of his mother and his relationship with his father....don't want to spoil the plot but i think your find its the old chestnut of being a bit of the Oedipus complex and neglect, well thats what i found it said anyhow
