With Kathleen Beller, Michael Brandon, Dennis Franz, Scott Paulin, Elizabeth Huddle, Charles Tyner, George Wyner, Raye Birk.
Well-crafted TV horror movie has Kathleen Beller (No Place to Hide and Are You in the House Alone?) witnessing a murder in her own apartment building...and then being stalked by the mystery killer out to guarantee her silence.

Ominous messages from her ouija board warning of impending death only serve to intensify her fear (understandably).

But is there something more personal to the murderer's pursuit?

An intelligent storyline is buoyed by good performances from Beller and boyfriend Brandon, nicely chosen settings and an overall clever hook.
