Description: This is not Walker’s best work and, notwithstanding its inclusion in Shriek Show’s British Horror Quadruple Feature, really isn’t horror. But it is a decent, if slow starting, thriller staring Susan George. Without giving too much away, George is a go-go dancer on the run from her wealthy father. She stands to come into a sizable chunk of cash and some pictures of daddy fucking a goat or something on her 21st birthday, and her family wants to ensure that doesn’t happen.
The plot meanders a bit, but, internet criticisms notwithstanding, I thought it was pretty easy to follow. Definitely decent and watchable and recommended for fans of Walker, George, Judy Huxtable and/or ugly British dudes. Woefully deficient in naked George. Or naked anybody for that matter. But I don’t want to undersell it; mediocre Walker is still good stuff.
