sick stuff
16 June 2002 | by Insomniac_moviefanSee all my reviews

Telly Savalas directed, and produced this film. Oh yeah, he starred in it too. It's a regular film about a psychiatrist that turns crazy after attending lots of cases. He's married, he has a daughter, but still he is after the bones of the beautiful Leslie Valentine. I don't know if the actress that plays Valentine is Priscila Barnes, or Laura Johnson, I don't know but in the movie she's hot! ...Give a try to this movie, ehh it's not bad just because Savalas stars on it, but I'm sure it's not for everyone, it's for people that like boring dramas, so bad that they are good and you cannot stop watching it. Did I mention that the actress who plays Leslie Valentine is beautiful, and delivers a great performance?.
