Stupid movie that was churned out seemingly without much effort or thought.
I remember watching this when I was a kid and actually getting scared to death of it. I missed the ending because my parents sent me to bed and that made it worse.
At its heart the film has one frightening idea going for it. It was made very soon after the University of Dallas Texas sniper incident. The thought that you can be going about your business and some nut with a high powered rifle and a telescopic lens can just end your life was truly chilling.
The callous attitude of the police can make it all even worse.
