Interesting movie with lots of friends
12 February 2009 | by bill-jacobsSee all my reviews

I roomed with Kim Henkle in an old house off San Gabriel and 23 1/2 st. We shared a bedroom in the back. He got me in the wedding scene as an extra. It was filmed at Wooldridge Park. Friends David and Amy Spaw (then married, now divorced) were in the movie as was Allen Danziger and Ron Perryman (I think). The movie is hazy, I don't recall much other than the bathtub scene with Amy and the wedding scene. Myself, David and Amy, as well as Kim and Ron Perryman (now deceased) all owned 40 acres of land together in Colorado for awhile (along with several other people) - a place to escape to in case the Revolution came. I didn't know Tobe Hooper other than as an acquaintance. Kim and Tobe went on to TCM fame, Ron was active as a character actor, Amy went into jewelry-making, and David took over management of Spaw Construction. The Revolution never came!
