Quotes

[first lines]
TV Reporter: Police say the body was found early this morning by a wildlife photographer in a mangrove swamp off Key Biscayne. The victim's clothes were in disarray, and police believe she may have been the victim of an assault. This is possibly the third rape/murder in as many weeks. However, police are not willing to say the murders are connected.

Very suspenseful slasher/serial strangler flick.
31 July 2012 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A reporter suspects a creepy neighbor,who lives in the high-rise building across from hers is a serial killer terrorizing the Miami area.This sexual predator calls his victims repeatedly before raping and strangling them."Eyes of a Stranger" by Ken Wiederhorn is a suspenseful slasher flick with effective gore scenes by Tom Savini.The killings are fairly nasty and bloody including meat-cleaver decapitation,throat stabbing and throat slashing.The film is quite sleazy and misogynistic,so beware.John DiSanti plays really creepy psycho and Jennifer Jason Leigh is fantastic as the blind girl in one of her earliest roles.If you are a fan of "Maniac","The Prowler" or "Don't Answer the Phone" check out this thrilling spectacle.8 fish tanks out of 10.
