Memorable and well done erotic classic that's entertaining and a fun watch!
12 December 2012 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This has to rank as one of the best and my favorite erotic thriller of all time. Probably because it's one of the first I saw, as I remember in 1992 late at night catching this on a movie channel late one night. And plus the story of a phone sex operator getting terrorized by a crazy psycho like killer who also has a little sport of killing Oriental and Asian escorts made it an entertaining watch. "Intimate Stranger"(a true to it's word title a nice catch!)from the start is spine tingling and creepy with suspense as the voice of the caller to Cory(Blondie's Deborah Harry)already starts the mystery and most memorable and very disturbing in an erotic way is the scene of the crazed killer caller having the Asian/Oriental escort hog tied totally nude with a gag in her mouth, all as the sick guy plays his cat and mouse game before doing inside damage. Wow what a way to start an erotic film. So Cory who only moonlights as a singer finds that her life of a phone sex operator is not safe and from then on this film is a wild chase a game of suspense chill terror as she's helped out from a hot young Los Angeles up and coming cop named Nick(James Russo)and Cory's younger sister the outgoing Meg helps bait the killer. Also you will see in one of her first film appearances the hot Tia Carrere as a sexy Oriental escort. Overall this is a highly memorable and enjoyable erotic suspense film that thrills with chills and it tingles your spine yet it all produces erotic fun.
