Sherry Jackson at her evil best!
28 October 2005 | by HoohawnaynaySee all my reviews

Watch this movie for Sherry Jackson alone. Her performance here as a villain is superb. She steals every scene she is in. Thin plot about some vandals loot being stashed in a classic Corvette. When the unsuspecting new owners drive off in the car the chase is on. Sherry has some classic camp lines: Lighting up a cigarette in an elevator dressed as a nun, she tells a portly man "You got a problem fatso"?? Later in a biker bar, she pours a drink down a man's pants and then sets his crotch on fire! Sherry should have been a huge star in the 70's, she was gorgeous, could play tough or innocent and had tons of charisma! She even drives an EARTHMOVER in this flick. Supporting actors are good but this is Sherry's movie all the way. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
