Peril ★ 2000 (R)

Out-of-control plot dooms this women-in-peril saga. Terry (Fairchild) and her semi-disabled hubby Scott (James) are facing financial ruin but have one chance to save themselves. Unfortunately, Scott falls and gets trapped in a storm drain and when Terry goes for help, she gets captured by an escaped mental patient (Pare) who uses her as a hostage against the cops. Oh, and the water is rising in the storm drain, so Scott's gonna drown unless Terry can get free. Very dumb. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Morgan Fairchild, Michael Pare, John James, Steve Eastin, Thom Christopher; D: David Giancola. VIDEO
