    Leslie Bega, straight from her run on "Head of the Class", stars as Mickie, a prostitute living with her mentally disabled little brother. She works for psychotic pimp Sharkey (an unrecognizably young Jeffrey Dean Morgan). After he beats her best friend to death for trying to leave him, Mickie talks to a rival pimp who sets Sharkey up and tries to kill him. When it fails, Sharkey comes after Mickie. A Roger Corman production that remakes his 1985 film "Streetwalkin'" (which starred a very young Melissa Leo), essentially streamlining a bit and changing all the character names. The original film is better, but this one is fine, especially due to Morgan's unhinged performance.
