Killjoy (1981)
96 min.
Directed by John Llewellyn Moxey.
With Kim Basinger, Robert Culp, John Rubinstein, Nancy Marchand, Stephen Macht.
Beautiful Basinger stars in this interesting (if a bit confusing) TV entry about a young woman torn between two doctors: one a dedicated momma's boy mortician, the other a philandering playboy.

As the rival between the two produces a mysterious "other woman," Basinger is intent on finding out who her competition is.

But is her jealousy real? Is the other woman real?

Was a fictitious woman created to ignite passions, or was a murder committed somewhere along the line?

A fun but convoluted plot weighs this one down, but there are some moments spiked by Basinger's charms.
