Billy (George Katt) and Perry (Waylon Payne) have been friends in high school - but that was ages, and they've totally lost touch about 15 years ago. Billy has since fallen off the grid, trying to save himself from one job to the next, but always getting into trouble, and Perry on the other hand has become a successful optician running his own business, has a lovely wife, Lisa (Judy Jerome) and a son. In fact it seems Perry's leading the perfect (if boring) life when he receives a call from Bill, who has just tried to drown himself in the river - and now basically needs a change of clothes, and someone who lends him an ear. And it seems he has run out of current friends to a point where he has to dig deep in his past. Perry is happy to help out, after all bringing someone a change of clothes is a small gesture that might go a long way. It soon becomes clear that Billy needs company above everything else, so Perry agrees to have a couple of drinks with him, and even agrees to visit a strip club with him. Thing is, at the club, Billy slips something into Perry's drink, and soon enough, the two of them end up in a motel room with strippers Candy (Sayra Player) and Sherri (Rosebud Baker) - and somehow, Billy, the "good husband" lands in bed with Sherri, too, which isn't good. But things take a turn from bad to worse when Billy wakes up next to Sherri a couple of hours later and she's dead, under circumstances that look an awful lot like murder. And the fact that Perry has a total blackout regarding what went down really won't save him from prosecution should things get out ...

 

Now this is fun genre entertainment: Sure it's made on a budget, but the story fits the budgetary constraints very well and relies on structure and build-up rather than spectacle, and makes its impact through character, dialogue and situation - in other words, good, in the best sense of the word old-fashioned storytelling. So even if the basic plot of the movie, including its resolution, isn't entirely original, the whole thing feels fresh throughout, and a subtle directorial effort and strong key performances only help to bring this across.

Very enjoyable for sure!
