Crew
Directed by Michael Oblowitz


Meet Marty & Carol… Two People Who Are Very Good At Being Bad! They were bound by blood, driven by greed and enslaved by desire. Billy Zane (Dead Calm) and Gina Gershon (Showgirls) turn up the heat as wickedly seductive siblings who would do anything for each other. Grifters Marty (Zane) and Carol (Gershon) are bad-to-the-bone twins whose devastating physical beauty is only equaled by their intense greed and the depths to which they’ll sink to get what they want. Enter their intended prey, the ravishingly beautiful and sultry Lois Archer (Sheryl Lee, Twin Peaks), a repressed lady cop with some powerful needs and prime piece of beachfront property. But Lois is a woman with secrets of her own, and before long, brother and sister discover their would-be foil in nobody’s fool. Co-starring Rue McClanahan (The Golden Girls), Will Patton (No Way Out) and Seymour Cassel (Rushmore), this sexy, stylish tale of passion and coldblooded murder is razor sharp film noir with a smooth velvet touch. This searing tales of lust and larceny was based on story by legendary pulp writer Jim Thompson (The Getaway, The Killing).
