    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Imagine being unlucky enough to buy a haunted house... and THEN find out that you have a street gang on your doorstep!

    The story is all over the place, but I think that's part of its charm... "Theatre of Blood" updated to the Eighties, and without the class.

    The best bit is when one of the bikers takes off his leather jacket... to reveal a MAGENTA VELOUR top, underneath!

    Pulp-literate fun from Fred Dekker... It's easy to see why he and Shane Black gravitated toward one another!

    Maybe the most authentic depiction of intimacy that I've ever seen, in cinema... The chemistry is ... electric.

    Sadly, I don't think I'll ever know passion like it, myself, but - ironically, given how it ended - I got a real charge of adrenaline from watching those who did.

    Sometimes, the people who smother you, and the people that encourage you to spread your wings, are doing it for the same reason - because they care.

    It's the people who abandon you, that you're better off without.
