This film is a thriller with out thrills. No blood, no nudity, low body count. The cover makes the film look like some kind of erotic thriller which is laughable. The sexiest thing you get is a belly dance! The film opens with a clown killing a girl than it's all down hill from there. The majority of the film focuses on Hal and his fiancé fighting and Hal sitting in the dark afraid of the killer and listening to prank phone calls. A rare and unknown film that deserves to stay that way. There's also a red herring janitor, a swan dive out a window, and Frank Sinatra's Love and Marriage! This is one of those films where the writer/director couldn't make up his mind on what kind of film he was going to make...and it suffers.
