Terrific obscure thriller
4 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A woman moves into a high rise building with a history of suicides and finds herself being harassed by an unseen psycho, who cleverly manages to remain distant enough to keep from being captured by police. Not much time is spent developing characters or story lines, this one simply works on the viewers' emotions, and succeeds where so many suspense films fail. The suspense starts building slowly and grows to a sweat-inducing rate by the climax. Very rarely does a television film capture its audience so calculatedly, and with such determination, as this one does.

A lost and forgotten John Carpenter film released in 1978 to television audiences, but never officially released on video in the U.S. Well worth the time to uncover.
