The Fan (1981)
95 min.
Directed by Edward Bianchi.
With Lauren Bacall, James Garner, Maureen Stapleton, Michael Biehn, Hector Elizondo, Anna Maria Horsford, Kurt Johnson, Dwight Schultz, Dana Delaney, Griffin Dunne.
This glossy NYC slasher chronicles celebrity admiration gone too far.

Great White Way diva Sally Ross (Bacall) regularly receives fan letters from enthused fans.

But none of them are like the ones she receives from Biehn.

When the Broadway star's secretary (Stapleton) begins to give the unseen fan(atic) the cold shoulder, Biehn decides to take matters into his own hands...along with a straight razor!

Thrilling, with some quite nicely done death sequences and an intense showcase for young Biehn who rises admirably to the challenge.
