Debut theatrical feature film of actress Ilah Davis. The movie remains Davis' only film or television credit. See more »
The interior scenes in Grand Rapids of Jake's Calvinist relatives smoking and of Kristin's room with 'Star Wars' memorabilia and a peace sing is so inconsistent with Calvinist upbringing of children. See more »
A lot of strange things happen in this world. Things you don't know about in Grand Rapids. Things you don't want to know about. Doors that shouldn't be opened.

After seeing 8 mm I decided to check this out- Scott does a good job of portraying the distraut father who a detective has found showing up in porno flicks. A believable portrait of the lengths a dad will go to save his daughter from what he perceives is a life of depravity. Peter Boyle is a good addition to this- making the world seem real... all its players and the picture given of "the life" is seamy and real- especially how he dumps the girl who helped him find his daughter. One scene that really got to me was when Scott had to watch the scenes with his daughter in the movie- how he squirmed in his seat- revolted but attracted to the lurid details...a movie that uncovers and disturbs
