Next, Sorrow (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is a failing pop star who has her recording contract sold to Fingers and finds herself held hostage. Pleasure (Brendan Fraiser) is a man with psychic abilities working as Finger's henchman. Lastly, Love (Kevin Bacon) is a doctor who watches helplessly as the woman he loves slowly dies. He is willing to do anything to save her.
