    No, I checked it out and it was the writer/director, Victor Salva.

    The boycott of the movie was staged by his 20 year old victim, whom Salva had a video of himself performing oral sex with when the boy was 12.

    No, it was the director of the film and after the charges came out there were a few scenes cut (the shower scene with all of those naked young men) from the movie that were considered too erotic for the public to handle. And yet we all got to see Sharon Stone and all of her blond glory on the big screen!! Go figure............

    I'm a straight male, but that scene wasn't my fondest childhood memory.

    I thought "Call of Cthulhu."

    I lost my love for Sharon Stone in that awesome "Magnum P.I." episode where she portraid her twin sister. That was a long time ago.

    I can see a loose resemblance between them.....weird guy with extraordinary gifts being alienated. Not any more than that though.
