It's not terrible
29 August 2010 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This movie,which once peered from many a rack at many a VHS-rental store in the late 80's/early 90's (perhaps because no one ever rented it), has been resurrected recently on DVD thanks to Rare Flix and Media Blasters (perhaps some flicks are rare these days for a reason). It's not really a slasher movie, but more of a stalker movie along the lines of other 80's stalker flicks like "The Seduction", "Thief of Hearts", "Lady Beware", or "Party Line" (the latter of which I was once treated to a private screening of--because I was the only one in the theater). It was also an early direct-to-video/direct-to-late-night-cable "erotic thriller" and by the standards of THAT dismal genre it's actually not bad.

The heroine of the movie is a sexy men's magazine nude centerfold played by an, um, sexy men's magazine nude centerfold, Charlotte Helmkamp (at least she didn't have to stretch herself too much), who is being stalked by an obsessed fan. There are a lot of shots of her posing nude or in a various states of undress. On the other hand, there are also a lot of shots of the 'roided-up meatheads at the gym where she works out, so this might also appeal to all the "metro-sexuals" circa 1989. Personally,I have hard time getting nostalgic about the year 1989--1984-1986 certainly for personal reasons, and 1991-1992 were real water-shed years in movies and music--but 1989, ehhh.

But that leads me to the music in this movie. If I end in up hell, this is the kind of thing they will probably be playing (but without the visuals of Helmkamp getting naked). This movie does have a few things going for it. Helmkamp, at least, is a believable stalking victim (in a lot of later 90's movies, she herself no doubt would have been the crazed stalker). It's also certainly not the worst performance by a former Playboy Playmate. (This was in the days before Jenny McCarthy and Pamela Anderson-Lee-Michaels-Rock). This not the worthiest choice for a DVD release perhaps, but it's not terrible.
