Trivia

Director Karen Arthur disowned (and nearly took her name off of) the finished film. Against her wishes, the studio re-edited the film to show more nudity on the part of Diane Lane. In addition, the studio minimized Cotter Smith's performance, and all scenes with Viveca Lindfors were eliminated; both actors played characters integral to the plot, and these eliminations made the film more confusing.

Goofs

When Katya is hiding in Dr Price's office she drops a garter and we see a right hand reaching for it. In the next shot she is pulling her left hand away. See more »

User Reviews

 
Young woman threatened by stalker.
13 December 1998 | by TangorSee all my reviews

Diane Lane is a window dresser whose life is turned upside down by an obsessed stalker. The suspense in this dark tale rises to a fever pitch over a series of increasingly threatening incidents. The cinematography is stark and, though in color, has the feel of earlier film noir suspense.
