    Sleazy Lifetime. It gives you what you want: Tania Raymonde hot and scary. I also learned the term "three-hole wonder".

    I'm not one to say that you can't make humor out of horrible situations, but this one didn't ride the line effectively.

    I still enjoyed it, but I wasn't able to fully engage with either end of the funny-sad spectrum when the movie wanted me to.
