I always wondered about this film but never rented it from the video store back in the day. Severin out out a restored version on Blu-ray so of course I have to check it out.
Basically what I thought it was going to be. Traci Lords is trying her best. Ted has that quirky delivery we expect from a Raimi. And Ricki Lake is does as good as she could do with this material. Then there's that one sequence where Raimi wears the skin of a black guy and walks around speaking with a jive accent. The sequence is definitely going for laugh so it's hard to swallow in 2019.
I'd like to know more about director Ivan Nagy. (There's a 2007 interview on disc) Nagy got caught up in the Heidi Fleiss Hollywood prostitution ring scandal when it was revealed that he was at one time a boyfriend of Heidi Fleiss.
Severin Blu-ray - nice extras
