loved it but was never able to find it on video...back in the early 90's at least
19 April 2006 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

I saw a part of this movie on a cable channel a LONG time ago and looked all over for the movie to rent it but couldn't find it anywhere. It turns out it was on Showtime and that was the only place to see it...I finally got to watch the whole thing and really was creeped out. I liked the whole plot and the way the killer and Ally Sheedy were in each other's heads.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, but I will add, in the past, I've seen movies that I found horrifying as a young adult or even late teen but as a more let's say mature? person now, found them ho-hum or ridiculous. i hope this is not the case with this movie.
