Fairchild tries but it's a dud
19 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stupid "thriller". Ridiculously beautiful TV anchorperson Jamie Douglas (Morgan Fairchild) has it all--a successful career, a big beautiful house (that no anchor could ever afford) and a loving boyfriend (Michael Sarrazin). She also has a photographer who adores her named Derek (Andrew Stevens). However his adoration turns into stalking and Jamie begins to fear for her life.

I had totally forgotten about this thing (I can't call it a movie) until it just popped into my head recently (for whatever reason). I remember seeing it on cable TV back in 1982. I set my expectations on low because let's face it--this was only made to show Fairchild nude a couple of times. It was even worse than I expected! The plot was illogical with some truly preposterous "twists". It got boring really quick. The ending especially was bad and seemed sort of rushed.

Fairchild was (and is) a beautiful woman and she looks great here--but she can't act. She tries her best but she just can't pull it off. I actually got uncomfortable seeing the poor woman attempt to act. Sarrazin can be good--but not here. He looks terrible and is far too old for Fairchild (he's 10 years older than her in real life--and it shows). I spent most of the movie wondering what her character ever saw in the guy. Stevens was never a good actor but he is handsome and kind of playful in the role. But, all in all, this was a boring and stupid "thriller". Also Fairchild's nude scenes are brief (if you're watching for that). A 1 all the way.
