Storyline

Cathys mother killed her father and tried to kill her when she was ten. Her younger brother, a priest, holds her responsible. Fifteen years later Bob manipulates a clingy, drippy Cathy into falling in love with him. He lures her back to the apartment building of her youth for a so-called work party. There, he and his business partner Monica and a few of their oddly pathetic friends hold Cathy hostage for a few hours before forcing her off the side of the building roof. She becomes one of them, a 'lurker'. The building is supposed to be 'hell' and everyone born there is evil and is brought back there to die. Cathy becomes one of the lurkers who floats around town warning other people who the baddies try to get back to the building - Bobs new girlfriend and Cathys priest brother including.

They are lurking in the shadows of New York.
17 October 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The premise of Roberta Findlay's "Lurkers" is certainly fascinating:the group of ghostly tenants are forced to spend an eternity in a creepy New York building.The main character,a violinist is terrorized by the Lurkers. "Lurkes" is an amusing late 80's horror cheapie made by highly prolific Roberta Findlay.The special effects are bad and there is no gore,but some scenes of child abuse are quite unsettling.There are few scenes of nudity,so I am not complaining."Lurkers" is a pure cheese with terrible acting and slow-moving script.If you enjoyed "Prime Evil" any other low-budget horror movie made by Roberta Findlay check this one out.6 out of 10.Just remember:Lurkers are NOT lurking.
