Eyes of a Stranger (1981)
84 min.
Directed by Ken Wiederhorn.
With Lauren Tewes, Jennifer Jason Leigh, John Di Santi, Peter DuPre, Gwen Lewis, Kitty Lunn, Timothy Hawkins, Ted Richert, Toni Crabtree, Bob Small, Stella Rivera.
Mediocre slasher with Tewes (Julie from The Love Boat).

Newsreporter Jane Harris (Tewes) is out to uncover the identity of the serial killer/rapist terrorizing the city.

Turns out the wacko fiend is the poor woman's neighbor!

A few good thrills and the interesting Leigh as Tewes' deaf & blind sister can't buoy this above the average mark...of little help is the fact that the Savini gore FX were heavily trimmed prior to its release.

Still...these are the *exact* sorts of titles that begin to look better & better in contrast to each passing year's 'machine gun slicker-than-slick' current releases.
