good film. michelle nude worth a watch
23 March 2018 | by santanaf-30213See all my reviews

I liked the film. well written and part of the tales of the crypt movie series. seeing the lovely michelle roderiquez nude and coping a feel with her fingers deep inside her.is worth the watch. i have always found her tough and sexy. she has a beautiful body .i would give her a golden globe award if i could. the movie makes sense,is not boring and an ensemble cast of very famous actors.
