Laughably bad sex thriller stars  as a psychiatrist left blind to the colour red after one of his more unstable patients commits suicide in front of him and he is traumatized by the sight of her blood. He takes a leave of absence from work and goes and visits a California colleague () who is murdered soon after Willis’ arrival. Now, against his own desire, he must take over Bakula’s therapy group and try to figure out who did the dirty deed. On the sidelines, he meets an impish girl named Rose () who keeps him busy in the shower, outdoor pool and eventually bed after every hard day of work. Some of the dialogue will make you laugh out loud, and March’s atrocious acting doesn’t help either. The talents of great character actors like ,  and  are sadly misused in this awful misfire from the once-great director of The Stunt Man.
