Julia is babysitting two young kids while a doctor and his wife are out. During the evening, a stranger knocks on the door asking Julia if she can call the auto club so he can get a tow. The phone line is dead though. This is all part of the act as he has made his way inside and abducted the two children. Years later, Julia has become an introvertive college student. She claims the stalker is back haunting her. Enter Jill Johnson and now retired cop John Clifford, who have reunited to help Julia find the stalker. Can they stop him before he strikes again?

Before there was "Scream," there was... the stranger.
Did You Know?
Jill Schoelen tried to change one of Julia's lines in the opening scene, where she asks the stranger who she wants her to call. The line originally read: "Whom do you want to call?" Schoelen wanted to change it to who instead of whom, as she believed that Julia, being a young school student, would make such a mistake. Walton initially opposed, as Julia is dressed like a private school student and would speak more formally, but ultimately relented. Schoelen ended up saying the line as it was written in the script anyway. See more
Jill Johnson had a husband and two kids in the original film, in the following years after she had been terrorized by the killer in the opening scene.
