Young woman still upset over the mysterious death of her boyfriend takes a job at a brand new mall. However, it appears a secret admirer is watching over her and making sure nothing bad happens to her. Is it her supposedly dead boyfriend. Good premise given cheap, cliched treatment. Poor special effects to boot! Morgan Fairchild tries to inject some class into this, but even she can't save this mess.

Rated R; Sexual Situations, Nudity, Violence, and Profanity.
