This movie had been bugging me for years. I remembered seeing it many years ago on TV when I was a young teen. I knew there were no big stars in it, I couldn't recall the title, for years have "looked out" for it in the TV guide without really knowing what I was looking for.
Yesterday, in a moment of boredom, I typed as a search everything I could remember which was pretty much " attractive blonde girl lives in beautiful studio apartment, is a window dresser and gets stalked". Yeah, right, like that would do it.
Imagine my surprise when this title jumped right out at me, and then again when the entire thing was on you tube to watch free!
I would never have picked it - she looks entirely different on this cover.
While it's not quite *ahem* the quality film I remember, it's still pretty damn good in a tacky 80's way. Acting is a little over the top, but it still tops most of the newer thrillers. The one glaring plot hole is, why didn't he break the window - but it's nitpicking!
Genuinely creepy and disturbing stalker, some of it just made me cringe, and diane Lane is perfect as Katya. Exceptionally beautiful and convincing as a young creative girl with big dreams. I still love her apartment!
This is one well worth checking out for fans of the 80's, or b grade/obscure thrillers. Unfortunately it is not on dvd, trust me, I looked!
This movie help make my career in Visual Merchandising and Window display. I lived for this movie and YES finally got it on dvd thought it is out of print . I enjoyed all the creativity that went into the windows and the film. I wanted an apartment just like hers but being in florida not possible ..however I do have a house full of mannequins just like Katya :)
I'm a doctor in the hallway passing the door twice outside of where Smith watches Lane do her window magic
