"She's a maniac, maniac at your door/And she's dancing like she never danced before"
19 November 2006 | by FieCrierSee all my reviews

Jennifer Beals' character moves into a NYC apartment in a not-so-great building in a not-so- great neighborhood. However, it's hers, and she's glad to have it and makes it her own.

However, a man keeps peeking through the mail slot in her door; the police won't help, and it's driving her crazy, but she won't give up her ground.

Her friends try to help, offering to stay with her, or have her stay at their place, or to call the police, or meet the neighbors, or cover up the slot. That she doesn't, and nobody else suggests the obvious thing - adding a shield to the inside of the door that would allow the mail to drop through, but no sightline, suggests there's something inevitable about the ending (as there is with almost all Hunger episodes).

This episode is one of four packaged by York Entertainment under the title Creature Comforts.

Incidentally, I wonder if it's true that the song "She's a maniac" from Flashdance really originated with William Lustig's Maniac (1980)?
