Regal feast
13 March 2002 | by (Tallahassee, FL) – See all my reviews

Romance, suspense, horror and treats for the theater 'gore' abound in this grade b spectacle. Eye-candy, an exciting script and 'delicious' actors make Queen enjoyable for intellectuals. aficionados and Rice-purists. A wild ride with a heart. See it with someone you trust :0)
