Storyline

Victoria can't sleep: she's having bad dreams about being buried alive. Her husband Terry makes her go see Dr. Carlton, who she blames for her father's death. Unable to help her, he asks Dr. Harcourt to try and unlock Victoria's mental block with hypnotism. Meanwhile Terry continues an affair with his secretary, and worries about paying off a huge gambling debt. Terry could pay off his debt and be with his secretary if he could just get his hands on Victoria's money somehow. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Poe little Brinke
8 October 1999 | by Robbie-43See all my reviews

The auteur Olen Ray put his heart into this telling tale. It stars All-Century Eye Candy Hall of Fame member Brinke Stevens who can uncork our cask of Amontillado anytime. Ms. Stevens plays a woman with a haunting fear of premature burial. Her evil husband is hoping to usher her fall to gain possession of her house. Pitted against this man, will Ms. Stevens conquer her terrors against her worm of a husband or will the pendulum swing against her, driving her 'raven' mad? We apologize for this descent into the maelstrom and pledge to repeat it nevermore. All that stated, the film is enjoyable even though we can not understand why anyone married to Ms. Stevens would want to be cruel to her. Also, Ms. Stevens takes a bath in the film confirming the old adage that cleanliness is next to goddess-liness.
