Los Angeles anchorwoman Jaime Douglas has it all: a glamorous career on a top-rated news show, a luxurious house in the hills, and a devoted young admirer named Derek. But when Jaime rebuffs his romantic advances, Derek becomes an obsessed stalker who plays out an increasingly psychotic courtship with the frightened newswoman. Soon he is threatening every part of her life, secretly watching ever her most intimate moments. Her tough-talking lover can't help her. A by-the-book policeman can't protect her. Now Jaime is alone, trapped like an animal and fighting back with the only weapon she has left. Will she finally be forced to use luscious body to fulfill the seduction?

A stimulating and thought-provoking performance by Morgan Fairchild
15 January 2007 | by (The King Kamehameha Club) – See all my reviews

Some people may snicker at this film, but back in the heady days of 1982 we just weren't as sophisticated about the celebrity stalker phenomenon as we are today. We didn't have to be, it was a more gracious and civilized time to live and, I might add, a golden era for television.

But dark days were just around the corner and those of us in the public eye owe the lovely Ms. Fairchild quite a debt for her eye-opening work on this film. I myself found it particularly enlightening when she demonstrated the dangers of being stalked while showering, swimming nude or taking a bubble bath while stroking one's silky thighs.

I'd also like to say that though some philistines may have nominated Colleen Camp for a Golden Raspberry award, I thought she was fantastic in her role, though we could have seen more of her.
