British suspense story beats the tar out of anything Hollywood has done!, 24 November 2006
Author: rixrex from United States

Every once in a while, I get a chance to view an unheralded, unknown film story that reinvigorates my film viewing habit. Too often, the hyped-up Hollywood "most suspenseful film of the year" stuff is the least suspenseful already-been-done tripe that a studio committee could muster. But it's covered with big-name stars, grandiose special effects, head-hammering incessant soundtrack, to make you forget you've seen it before. This small-budget British feature that I found for $2 at the local thrift store, done as part of the Thriller TV series, is the opposite. Superb acting by relative unknowns, soundtrack that is outstandingly subtle and effective, and not in the way. But the best part of this is the sheer terror of the lone girl locked in the high-rise office with the killer after her, all done in tremendously suspenseful fashion. You will see that somebody, whoever it may be, in this production certainly knew how to create tension in much the same manner as the great Alfred Hitchcock when he was making his series of British suspense dramas before coming to the US. I would have given this a 10 but for a couple of clumsy moments that will not stop you from enjoying this immensely, especially if you are a fan of vintage Hitchcock.
