Writer/Director Richard Rush made a deal with Andrew Vanja to release his "version" of the film Internationally and on Home Video after the films' theatrical run was a failure complete with negative reviews which Rush himself predicted and told Vanja would happen after re-editing the film. Vanja would not give him foreign rights because it was already released the same day as the US release date, but did grant Rush all home video rights and it has been "his" version that has been available on DVD and VHS for a very long time. Kino Lorber has just recently released both versions of the film on Blu-Ray with the compromised 121 Minute theatrical cut being released for the first time ever. See more »

Dr. Bill Capa:
Six weeks ago, I spoke harshly to a patient and she committed suicide. Right in front of me. Perhaps she would have done this anyway. That's what my colleagues say. But I don't know.
Oh, I'm so sorry.
Dr. Bill Capa:
And my patient, her name was Michelle, jumped out of a window in my office.
Dr. Bill Capa:
So much blood. So red, and I... and right, uh, before my eyes the red, uh, disappeared. Just turned to gray, and so I don't see... red now. But, see, I was her doctor. And I failed. So I cannot help you. I don't think ...

Knowing nothing about this movie before I saw it, I have to admit that it surprised me with its plot-twists...but looking back, I should have known better! That's the great thing about trashy movies: you can have a high time while it's playing, knowing you'll hate yourself the next day (and that you'll never have to watch the thing again). Bruce Willis is a psychiatrist troubled by a patient's suicide; he goes to stay with a friend and...to give any more away would be criminal! Suffice it to say, Bruce is nude in this one, and it's a long-held sequence that gives star-peepers what they've paid for. I didn't think the sex scenes were terrifically charged, but you gotta hand it to Willis: he takes a chance here and shows his courage. Yet there are times when he has question marks all over his face, as if to ask, "what's a nice box-office star like me doing in a piece like this?" ** from ****
