This movie concerns a writer of mystery stories who bases his villain on a criminal, played by Malcolm McDowell, who is incarcerated in prison. Escaping prison after his apparent death in a fire, the criminal plans to revenge himself on the writer (Sir Roger Moore) for "stealing his personality", and proceeds to carry out a set of murders based around the novels. Moore is unable to convince the authorities of the true murderer, and alerted by an avid fan (Nancy Allen) who has psychic powers, seeks to trap McDowell into giving himself away.Written by

Roger Moore vs. Malcolm McDowell. Just can't fall asleep in front of your TV.
The film is truly one of the best Condon's films. The plot is extraordinary just like the performances of Roger Moore (ex-writer Thomas Grace) and Malcolm McDowell (psycho Bernard Drake). Both characters are created in the best possible way. It's a pity that Condon did only one film with Moore , but maybe that's why this film is so special. If you've got some free time and you want to spend it in front of your best friend - TV , watch this film and enjoy it.
