Storyline

While parked in a remote spot lunching Chinese food with his partner, Detective Frank Spivey saves a disfigured woman called Jenifer from being sliced with a meat cleaver by a deranged homeless man. He feels sorry for the retarded Jenifer, and takes her from an insane asylum and brings her home. Frank becomes obsessed for Jenifer, feeling lust and attraction for her lascivious body. When he realizes that she is a human beast, he moves with her to an isolated old cabin in the woods, with tragic consequences. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

This was the only Season 1 episode to require cuts. 2 shots were removed from the final film, both involved graphic depictions of oral sex. The first one occurred during the sex scene in the car, and the second occurred at the end of the film. The deleted scenes are edited into the 'So Hideous My Love' documentary on the DVD. See more »

Frank rolls up his car window after swatting a fly, but when he gets out of the car moments later his window is down. See more »

Quotes

Chief Charlie: If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck with a meat cleaver.

enjoyable time-waster
16 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seems Showtime-on-Demand screwed up and gave us a sneak peek of this episode (it's under the title of "Dreams in the Witch-house on the Comcast menu,but it IS the Dario Agento directed "Jenifer").Steven Weber is Frank a happily married policeman who one day saves the life of a girl who's about to be chopped up in the woods by an apparent psycho. She's peculiar in a way, she can't talk, her face is deformed, and she seems to hold sway over Frank, whom retrieves her from the mental hospital that she's put it after the fateful event of the day she was saved He takes her back to his house because she doesn't have any place to stay otherwise. That's when things go out of control. Weber gives his best performance of his career thus far (I know that's not saying much, but he is good in this), but the story and how it played out was very predictable. At no point in the whole film did I feel like I was in unsafe territory. That being said, the episode was the most sexually charged and violent one thus far which was fun, but "Jenifer" as a whole didn't really do anything for me, even though it is well-made and visually appetizing.

Eye Candy: Brenda James and Carrie Ann Fleming both show T&A

My Grade: B
