Storyline

A recently paralyzed architect, Jason Kemp, believes he has witnessed a murder from his apartment window. Jason's colleague, Claudia, quickly becomes his partner in trying to solve the mysterious puzzle that lies in the apartment across the way. The more-than-patient detective, Moore, grudgingly responds to their repeated calls and accusations, but believes Jason's imagination is getting the best of him. Determined to uncover the truth, Jason continues to dig deeper - eventually finding himself locked in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Written by Paul Klenk <paulklenk@rocketmail.com>

Trivia

Christopher Reeve initially turned down the lead because he found Eric Ellis Overmyer's script to be too melodramatic and not medically accurate pertaining to his post-accident condition. Overmyer rewrote the screenplay, using Reeve's autobiography "Still Me" as a reference and this met with the star's approval. See more »

Quotes

Antonio: What you doing here sitting in the dark?
Jason: Spying on my neighbors. I think she's just discovered that her husband's go an online girlfriend. Now she's really reading him the riot act.
Antonio: Serious melodrama.
Jason: I'm telling you.
Antonio: I'm gonna have to try and fix you up one of those personal surveillance devices. Get you that all-important bird's-eye view.
Jason: Would that make me a bona fide, no-two-ways-about-it peeping tom?
Antonio: Definitely.
Jason: Go for it!

A Disgrace to the Original
22 November 1998 | by (College Station, Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie was a disgrace to the film Hitchcock directed in the 50's. Remaking this classic wasn't a bad idea, but they did a terrible job. They removed all of the elements that made the original great and all that was left was a bad TV movie. They would have done much better to stick closer to plot of the original.
