  • Nightmare at Maple Cross [GWR/Profile, 1987] B+

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Nightmare at Maple Cross [GWR/Profile, 1987]
Since these five females or others of the same name have been doing the old forced march since 1980, I assume the crucial exuberance of their recycled Sweet-metal is something of a simulation. But second-hand cock-rock it ain't--no rape threatened or implied. Just show business. B+
