Promising title for a dissapointing movie

Slash Dance (1989)
Starring: Cindy Maranne
Director: James Shyman
Rating: Two of Ten Stars

A beautiful homicide dective (Maranne) goes undercover as a chorus dancer to solve the mysterious disappearances of young dancers.

"Slash Dance" has a promising title that it completely fails to deliever on The direction and editing in this misbegotten movie is clumsy, the acting is amateurish, and the script is so badly done that we're left with a movie that can't seem to decide if it's a comedy or a thriller... and isn't a very good example of either. (The only thing in this movie worse than the acting is the dancing; I've seen grade school pagents with better choreography than this movie.)

This is one of those films that is should have been left to rot away on disused VHS tape instead of making the jump to DVD. Aside from some VERY mild chuckles, there is absolutely no entertainment value to this film.
