Good movie from the early 70's..An ABC "movie of the week". I watched this in reruns several times. A good Donna MIlls flick. Without spoiling the story, Donna Mills plays a school teacher who;s friend and roommate has something that a drug dealer wants.Donna Mills and her roommate get in a car crash, the friend gets killed and Donna Mills character is rendered a paraplegic who is stalked by this killer (Chuck Conners)..The rest of the movie is a cat-and-mouse series of sequences whereas Donna Mills is staying in this police officers large home alone, when this killer finds her and chases her around the house until the cavalry finally arrives....A good movie for its time.
