They all gotta' go somehow, doll. We all do. It was all written down more than a million years ago by a very funny god. You know, in the beginning, there was nothing. Then He spoke, and that's when all the shit started. We're just pawns, kid. You know, players. Playin' a part. God had to do something to amuse Himself, so He dreamt us up. I hope He got a good laugh, don't you, babe?

Deliciously trashy tragedy in B move style. For grown ups.
Gorgeous people doing grisly things. Family values...IS he sleeping with his sister? Will he kill his girl friend? Remember when slips were risque? Savor the flavor of the fifties. Big flashy cars. Good girls going to Tijuana for bad reasons. Tough women who really need a man to protect them. Bring your nostalgia and your sense of humor. Let the spell begin.
