Twitchy, eager, and ambitious small-time street hoodlum Mickey (a marvelously sleazy and antsy portrayal by the always reliable Steve Railsback) aspires to work as a drug runner for slimy major drug lord Joey Stregga (essayed with gleefully hammy brio by John Colicos). In order to achieve this goal Mickey has to set up his sweet and innocent ex-hooker girlfriend Pearl (a winningly spunky performance by foxy brunette Marie Laurin) on a date with Stregga. However, Mickey winds up paying a heavy price for betraying Pearl's pure love for him. Director Christopher Leitch, working from a suitably sordid script by William Darrid, relates the engrossing story at a snappy pace, creates and maintains a seamy and spooky mood throughout, further spices things up with a handy helping of tasty gratuitous female nudity and a smidgen of sizzling soft-core sex, and pulls out the over-the-top stylistic stops in the gloriously bizarre, shocking, and unexpected surprise bummer ending. Railback's trademark edgy and dynamic presence keeps things energetic and entertaining from start to finish. Paul Koslo is appropriately menacing as Stregga's strong-arm thug Ricco. The freaky dolls that litter Mickey and Pearl's apartment are a neat creepy touch while the doomed low-life couple's warm and tender relationship is genuinely touching. Thomas Burstyn's slick and agile cinematography gives this episode an attractive glossy look. Michel Rubini's funky rippin' score hits the get-down groovy spot. Best of all, the delectable Laurin isn't the least bit bashful about baring her lithe and lovely body a few times. A nifty show.
