Nova, a rising TV personality, after declaring that all handsome men in L.A. are gay, falls for a hunky stranger who is totally smitten with her - so she thinks. Her sexy stranger disappears without a trace. Her grief over unexplained deaths in her social circle is only made worse when we find that she is carrying the stranger's baby. The plot thickens and the anxiety is great as Nova struggles to find out who this stranger is and why he is stalking her. Written by Tom Hunt Brooks <thuntb@relaypoint.net>

User Reviews

There's some merit to even a slightly hokey movie.
18 October 2011 | by jjgrimes-2See all my reviews

I guess some people see only one side of the bell curve and the other, but there are a lot of movies that, while not even remotely in the Oscar category, are still worth a watch. "Kiss Of A Stranger" is one of them. Sure, it is a low-budget piece, but the acting isn't bad and the plot twists give it some interest at the conclusion.

The opening song, "Another Night Alone" sung by Deborah Holland has a smooth torch song feel to it, and is well done by her (lip-synched by Dyan Cannon). As the story progresses, the movie draws the viewer in, and gives a great "punch line" ending to explain the plot.

Not every movie watched has to be a "Gone With The Wind", or, conversely, a "Plan 9 From Outer Space"...there's plenty in the middle to be entertained by.

If it's on late-night cable sometime, or a copy is gathering dust on the DVD shelf of your video store, give it a try.
