Eyes of Laura Mars (1978)
103 min.
Directed by Irvin Kerschner.
With Faye Dunaway, Tommy Lee Jones, Brad Dourif, Rene Auberjonois, Raul Julia, Rose Gregorio, Lisa Taylor, Darlanne Fluegel.
Glitzy and entertaining slasher flick.

Hip fashion photographer Laura Mars (Dunaway) is at the height of her career: wealthy, controversial and creatively vibrant.

But when a series of eye-gouging murders begin to plague the city, Mars starts to experience 'visions' of the crimes through the eyes of the killer.

What happens when she sees an image of the killer coming after her?

Strong star performances from both Dunaway and investigator Jones, great NYC locations, sexy 70's fashions, and a perverse Studio 54 atmosphere are just a few of the reasons to see this thriller.

Great scene with Dunaway running through an empty warehouse in an attempt to save friend Donald (Auberjonois).

A sassy disco score only heightens the fun.
