Satan gets drafted to the Majors..., 11 March 2005
Author: manos_1 from United States

This movie made me squirm. It a movie you may not want to watch with your parents or girlfriend. The bad guy (portrayed by Mark Mench) does things to his team members and friends (and babysitter, even!) that are too awful to believe. And then he smiles like he's done them a favor.

The closest thing I can compare this to is the Oscar-nominated "Closer" except much meaner: this movie gets inside your head and screws around with your brain. This film is poison in pinstripes. If that sounds appealing, go rent it.

My only complaint is with soundtrack issues. Oftentimes I could not hear dialog. And be warned. There's a ton of it!
