If you were a famed mystery playwright with a devastating string of recent flops, what would you do for a can't-miss thriller script? Beg for it? Pay for it? Pray for it? Kill for it?

Qvamp says:

Listed as a thriller, this movie is still close enough to horror to be included. Plus, seeing Christopher Reeve play a gay man makes it all worth while. A classic.

This movie was known as having 'the ten-million-dollar kiss' - the revenue the producers believe they lost as a result of daring to show it.
