24 August 2015
Warning: Spoilers
***SPOILERS*** This movie about madness in the family starts with honor student Ryan O'Connor, John Tomson, going completely nuts and on a whim blowing his parents away as well as himself for what seems like no reason at ail. It's writer Elizabeth Hayes, Raquel Welch, who sees a connection to Ryan's actions and that has to do with him being adopted from a mental hospital where his mother was a patient! With that information Hayes is out to find out not just why Ryan's mother was institutionalized but if he had any sibling who may be as mentally unstable as he was!

As Hayes is searching for the late Ryan O'Connor's possible brothers and sisters we see the Patterson family having trouble with their adopted daughter Tori, Terry Green, who suddenly meets and becomes best friends with her next door neighbors daughter Lissa Drew, Natasha Gregson Wagnar,who's you guessed it is also adopted! It becomes apparent to us watching that there's a blood connection between the two girls and Ryan but the person who's trying to find it, and stop a future massacre, Mrs. Hayes is totally out in the dark. That in Ryan's records sealed by the state so it won't- with him being dead which by now makes no sense at all-affect his future employment & marital status!

***SPOILERS*** Writer Elizabeth Hayes works against the system not only in getting the big story but also preventing a future mass murder that the system is frustrating her at every turn from happening. As expected Tori's parents Mr.& Mrs. Pattersen are torched in their sleep and Tori is suspected of doing the torching but then there's no evidence of her doing it. We soon get to see that not only Tori is a bit off the wall but her friend Lissa isn't playing with a full deck either! That leads to the final confrontation with Mrs. Hayes who by now discovered the two girls identifies, as being adopted at the very same hospital where the late Ryan O'Connor was, coming on the scene in the films mind boggling climax! In a very controlled role, without once taking her cloths off,Raquel Welch as writer Elizabeth Hayes is very effective in her part as writer Elizabeth Hayes without exploiting her very curvy and ample,to the male audience, T & A. And the ending that has to be seen to be believed more then proves her point in what she did in trying to find Ryan's siblings before they end up imitating him!
