Not too bad
4 March 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Seeing Joe Penny in anything is a treat. Here is plays a not so nice guy out to no good. By doing away with a stranger that he takes the place of as a missing brother to our leading lady, played by Veronica Hamill. Wish she'd get another hair do. Her hair is jet black and hangs straight down her face making her look like Vampira. Not attractive. A little long in the tooth for such long hair. But Penny makes up for this. He's wonderful as he spins his web of violence to the fateful end. Nice to see Leigh Taylor Young, even though it's briefly, as a hot to trot lady out to get her man. And Daniel Hugh Kelly plays Hamill's boyfriend cop very well doing what he can to help her in her troubles. But, it's Penny that makes this movie a hit.
