Two stills from the movie, one showing Harold Pelham (Sir Roger Moore) reaching across for his seat belt, and the other showing a close-up of his hand fastening the seat belt buckle, were used as part of a road safety campaign to persuade people always to wear their seat belts. See more »
Just before Pelham's car crashes near the beginning of the film, he forces a Mercedes to move aside from the outside lane to the middle lane, then within seconds he crashes into a barrier. No such barrier would exist on a British motorway and the sequence of events would have led to the Mercedes crashing anyway had this car not been forced to change lanes by Pelham. See more »

Pre 007 Roger Moore plays a City businessman who finds himself being haunted by his doppelganger following a near fatal car crash. Very well made supernatural thriller which proves that you do not need gore or jump scares to make a film scary. It moves at a fast pace & kept me enthralled throughout. Good cast including a fine performance by Moore. Love the old Lamborghini that his duplicate drives around in!
