Sarah, a San Francisco accountant, moves into a new apartment building to be near her new boyfriend Jake, a writer with a case of writers block. When Jake has trouble with intimacy with Sarah, she escapes by eavesdropping on others people's phone lines and soon suspects that a man's voice on a phone sex line is a serial killer that is killing prostitutes all over the city on a nightly basis.

Quite a mess
30 December 2014 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

This movie has a lot of problems. Set in San Francisco, but obviously filmed elsewhere (Vancouver, I think) it overuses way too many of the erotic thriller clichés. It wasn't very erotic, with only one scene being an exception. It casts suspicion on too many characters. There is some really poor acting by the police characters, and the supposed big-city police department was shockingly inept. But I suppose if they had done a better job, there would a lot less to make a movie about. Brooke Langton and Sarah Buxton, the two leads, are really the only ones in the film who could act at all. They carried the corpse of this movie through all of the gaping plot holes, and in the end, one of the characters had to explain the whole thing in a voice-over. Ugh. Don't bother, although it's unlikely anyone will see it these days. I had taped it from cable many years ago, and just watched it. Probably not available commercially any more.
