Wow, this film could really have been something special, if it wasn't for the unfortunate, fatal error in casting the lead. The story of a 19 year old sociopath who takes his 15 year-old girlfriend on a wild killing spree circa 1950's, complete with vintage cars and 50's fashions; it could be a cult film today. Why they cast this actor, Russ Fast, to play the lead, is a complete mystery. The actor is easily in his 30's, and his attempts at acting like a teenager come across as clumsy and silly. He's not particularly good looking, and has zero charisma. How is an audience supposed to believe that this beautiful and smart young girl would be swept away by this loser? It wouldn't be a problem if he wasn't the MAIN character, who is in EVERY frame of the movie. It's a real missed opportunity, because most everything else in this film works really well.
