Storyline

A young couple, Mary and John, awaiting a baby is in search for a house when they decide to buy that lovely old villa they found by coincidence. What they both do not know is that Myron, the owner of that villa and their new neigbour, is a dangerous psychopath and that Mary reminds him of his dead mother. Mary begins to wonder about Myron's odd behaviour, but everybody thinks Mary's fears are due to her being pregnant. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Trivia

At approximately 1:20:06 in the film, as Dr. Wayburn looks up Mary's phone number, you can see the phone number for Allegro Films, the studio behind this film. See more »

Goofs

In researching Myron's past, Mary comes across a 1943 newspaper article which lists his father as being a lieutenant in the USAF. This is over 4 years before there was an independent Air Force, so it would still have been listed as the Army Air Corps, or the USAAF (Army Air Force) See more »

Rosemary's Baby imitation...sort of
26 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Because of the fact that Rod Steiger is in this film, it is quite scary.

He does an excellent job as a psychotic neighbor, who fixates on Linda Kozlowski, a newlywed who is pregnant.The story takes place in New England, and it seems the director could have taken advantage of this; used it as a sub-plot; maybe filmed in Salem, Massachusetts? At any rate, the story is believable; the idea of pre-partum psychosis is brought up; I couldn't help but be reminded of John Cassavetes in Rosemary's Baby. A classic performance.

For TV, this is not a bad movie; if you enjoyed the ""Seventh Sign"", with Demi Moore, or Roman Polanski's work, and have a free afternoon, the movie is worth watching.
