The Plumber (1979)

06/08/1979 (AU) ThrillerDramaHorrorTV MovieComedy 1h 17m

When your waterworks come back to haunt you!


At first simply grating, the presence of a hard-edged, macho plumber who damages more than he repairs and returns day after day soon turns menacing for the intellectual wife of a distracted doctor.
