Don't Answer the Phone (1980)





Movie Info

Cliched and predictable right from the beginning, Don't Answer the Phone features Nicholas Worth as Kirk Smith, a deranged body-builder who murderously vents his multiple psychoses on beautiful women. Apparently the scripters were anxious about slighting a syndrome or two, so he is also painted as a woman-hating, Catholic, sado-masochist, impotent Vietnam vet. Dr. Lindsay Gale (Flo Gerrish) has a radio talk show in which patients call in for advice. Much to her horror, her callers are being strangled, one by one. Lt. Chris McCabe (James Westmoreland) and Sgt. Hatcher (Ben Frank) are determined to hunt the killer down.
