An Oddly Memorable Movie
21 May 2000 | by hardcorejrhSee all my reviews

I watched this film in August of 1999 on Comedy Central. They usually show really horrible movies in the morning, but this one stood out. It wasn't one of their cheesy movies from the 80's they show. It wasn't one that had no known faces. It featured the funny guy from Friends (Perry), a funny comic (Chappelle), a bombshell (Swanson), and the star of Ally McBeal (Flockheart). Not to mention Andrew McCarthy, who plays a great diabolical character. I have only seen this movie twice (I wish I could find a video store that had it, but sadly I can't.). The story flows smoothly and the murder scenes made me shiver, but they were awesome! Not bad for a movie based in 1993.
