Storyline

Tough drama looks at the plight of a young L.A. prostitute, who shoots heroin to get through the day, sells sex just to survive, and eats roadkill sometimes when there isn't anything else available. Into this futile existence is thrown a psycho killer, who gets off on raping and slaughtering the girls he catches on the streets. Sy is a straight kid from Sanata Barbara, who gets drawn into this scuzzy underworld and tries to rescue the young prostitute from the killer and her existence. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Amazing Movie with Christina Applegate
6 September 2014 | by saturasdemonSee all my reviews

Finally I saw this movie and it is better than I imagined.

Without spoiling anything be prepared for some violence and sad scenes. The cinematography is beautiful and fits the story.

Don't miss on this film only because its a bit dated, its an "hidden gem" and could become some kind of early 90s cult classic if only more people would watch it.

So if you ever have the opportunity, watch it.

And I really hope this will be released sooner or later on DVD or Bluray (somebody make a petition).

If you liked the movie please make your own review and rate ;-)
