**SPOILERS** Documentary-like crime thriller about a masked rapist on the loose at an, what at first seemed like, safe and crime-free condominium, The Woodside Housing Complex. A place where you can keep the doors of one's apartment and car unlocked with no fear at all of them being broken into and stolen.

Moving in with his wife Michelle,Chelsea Field, from Michigan policemen Ray Dolan, Hart Bochner, gets his transfered to the Fulton County PD. There Ray's put on patrol outside of the apartment complex that he's living in. Within a week after the Dolan's moved in there's a rape at the complex that gets the tenants there very scared and immediately start to demand extra police protection.

The rapes continue with Ray assigned by his boss Det. Frank Ferral, Joe Don Baker, to the apartment complex as one of the cops on the task force to catch the rapist. On the grounds outside the complex Ray spots the rapist and after a long chase he eludes him inside the condominium. This convinces Ray, and Det. Ferral, that he's living among the people that he's been terrorizing all these weeks.

The chase and not capturing, or shooting, the rapist also has the tenants in the complex angry with Ray for letting him get away. There's another revelation that comes out later that has Ray feeling a lot like the husbands that had their wives raped. It has to do with Michelle, who's been keeping this secret from him ever since they were married. Michelle reviled it to him in order to gain sympathy and understanding for her almost destroys their marriage.

Pretty good thriller with Officer Dolan fighting his own demons as well as trying to catch the serial rapist at the same time. The rapist who can be anyone in the complex engages in a number of vicious and brutal assaults. The last on a helpless woman as her young six-year-old son that is locked in the bathroom. The little boy crying for the rapist not to hurt his mom is about as shocking and disturbing as anything you'll ever seen in a R-Rated motion picture. What's even more disturbing about that scene is that "Complex of Fear" is a made-for-TV movie.

Good detective work on the part of both Officer Dolan and Det. Ferral finally has the rapist tracked down just as he's about to strike his next victim Dolan's wife Michelle. A key piece of the evidence that eventually exposes the rapist is what football team he likes. It turns out that rapist comes from Chicago. H's a big Chicago Bears fan.

Joe Don Baker as Det. Ferral is at his usual folksy best as the seasoned lawman who's a lot more clever and effective then you would have first thought and methodically piece's all the clues together to finally come up with who he rapist is.

Hart Bochner, with a mustache, looks like a young Robert Taylor and is also very effective in his role as not only a dedicated police officer but a man who's troubled about himself in his work as a cop.

Beautiful Chelsea Field as Michelle Dolan is excellent as the wife of a cop who at first thought that she could confide in him. It turns out that her husband Ray completely fall apart and doubted his own competence as a man and a husband.

Ray was used to seeing this, rape,happening to people that he comes in contact with in his work in law enforcement every day. The act that it happened to his wife in a strange way make him a better, and caring, person. Not only to the rapist victims in the housing complex but to her,Michelle, as well.
