Storyline

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. Sarah then enlists the help of her girlfriend/ex-lover, Krista, to find the killer's identity before the killer finds them. Written by Matt Patay

DVD synopsis:

Sara is a successful San Francisco advertising executive enjoying her independence and life in the big city. Her new boyfriend Jake, convinces her to move in to th same apartment building. When activating her mobile phone in her new apart, she discovers that she has a one way connection in to peoples private calls. Soon she becomes addicted to th allure of listening to other peoples most intimate conversations. Sharing her secret with her best friend Krista, the two women continue to surf the airwaves. Both frightened and excited about what they listen to, Sarah and Krista are drawn unwittingly into a sinister and deadly turn of events.

One of the things I like most about this film in particular is that it has a very clever way of showing to the audience that not all those you trust and love are who they say they are. And that some secrets should remain secret. I first saw this film on television one night when I was younger and being a lover of suspense thrillers such as this, I really liked it but did not quite understand it the first time. Now that I have in my film collection, i watch it often and love it to this day. This is a good film, despite that some may say that the acting is poor or the storyline is not good enough, i recommend that you watch it for yourself.
