Has its ups and downs.
10 August 2018 | by PeterBradfordSee all my reviews

The good stuff: First of all, this was shot on 16mm film, not "shot-on-video" as one reviewer said. It was released direct-to-video. In fact, it was probably one of the very early films to go straight to video back in the glory days of VHS. The actors look good. The lighting is effective. The not so good stuff: the characters are not engaging, and the pacing doesn't work. It's an 80s curio, and worth a look for that.
