You have to love these types of low budget 80's movies
3 September 1999 | by Ice BlueSee all my reviews

The 80's were loaded with great low budget movies starring actors/actresses that were close to making it but fell short. Leah Ayres was like this. Her best known role was as the reporter tracking Jean Claude Van Damme in his break out film Blood Sport. You would think somewhere along the line she would pop up in a movie or two of his. Considering she showed half decent acting ability and gives an extremely classy appearance. Maybe she's too attractive for her own good. If you've seen this flick or know much of Ayres I'd love to hear about it.
