A Secret Service agent is framed as the mole in an assassination attempt on the President. He must clear his name and foil another assassination attempt while on the run from a Secret Service Protective Intelligence Division agent.
A fashion model moves into a house inhabited (on the top floor) by a blind priest. She begins having strange physical problems, has trouble sleeping at night, and has some nasty flashbacks of her attempted suicide.

It's all right. Listen, listen. I know everything now. The Latin you saw in that book was an ancient warning from the angel Gabriel to the angel Uriel.

The 1987 '18' rated UK video on the CIC label was the original cinema version. The later '15' rated release by Universal on the 4-Front label is the heavily edited US TV version. The 2008 Fremantle DVD features the original unedited version. See more »
The cast to this movie ranks up there as one of the best that I've ever seen together in one movie. That alone would have made me see this movie, but the fact that Chris Sarandon was in the lead cemented it. I still liked him from "Dog Day Afternoon" and "Lipstick".
Well, it just goes to show you that a large cast does not a great movie make! As a matter of fact, they are almost all totally wasted. Of special interest are Sylvia Miles and Beverly D'Angelo as naked ghosts, Chris Walken and Jerry Orbach as policemen and the very beautiful Ava Gardner as a real estate agent. There are at least 10-12 other famous actors aboard, too. Who knows why, though, but I guess you gotta eat.
Its all filmed in Brooklyn Heights, which still is a great neighborhood in Brooklyn. Its really just a flimsy ghost story masquerading as entertainment for the masses, which is a shame.
