enjoyable time-waster

Seems Showtime-on-Demand screwed up and gave us a sneak peek of this episode (it's under the title of "Dreams in the Witch-house on the Comcast menu,but it IS the Dario Agento directed "Jenifer").Steven Weber is Frank a happily married policeman who one day saves the life of a girl who's about to be chopped up in the woods by an apparent psycho. She's peculiar in a way, she can't talk, her face is deformed, and she seems to hold sway over Frank, whom retrieves her from the mental hospital that she's put it after the fateful event of the day she was saved He takes her back to his house because she doesn't have any place to stay otherwise. That's when things go out of control. Weber gives his best performance of his career thus far (I know that's not saying much, but he is good in this), but the story and how it played out was very predictable. At no point in the whole film did I feel like I was in unsafe territory. That being said, the episode was the most sexually charged and violent one thus far which was fun, but "Jenifer" as a whole didn't really do anything for me, even though it is well-made and visually appetizing.

Eye Candy: Brenda James and Carrie Ann Fleming both show T&A
