Movie Reviews

An underrated horror/suspense movie
web surfer | 01/23/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Wow, what a dark and brutal movie. A terrifying bad guy that is a real psycho, totally ruthless and crazy, and it's set in one of the most eerie and nightmarish places ever, down in the catacombs beneath New York City. You will never feel more hopeless when you see the heroine down in this dark underworld and you know nobody can help her. Check it out. Similar to "the New York Ripper" but better."
Great Mulgrew & Torn Flick

"This was a fantastic movie! I saw it years ago on cable and was dying to get a copy. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. For those of you who like suspensful dramas, I highly recommend this one. When is the DVD going to be released?? Hint, Hint."
A Stranger is a Stranger No More
Susan Waszak | Chattanooga, Tennessee United States | 11/04/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With talents such as Kate Mulgrew and Rip Torn "A Stranger is Watching" is an intense thriller of kidnapping and ransom. Considered a "slasher-flick" by some critics, it is too benign by today's standards. This is a thriller that will allow its viewers to go to sleep at night, but it will make them wary of vans without windows."
Could it have gone on a little longer so I would really get

"This was a terrific film. Faithful to the book and cast with two fabulous actors -- Rip Torn and Kate Mulgrew.

Any story that takes place underground is destined to scare me and this one did. I didn't expect this film to be a gritty and as detailed as it was. The scenes with the dumb-waiter were so realistic that I felt the rope burns on my hands. Rip Torn flings a wicked knife right into the center of things. Kate Mulgrew uses every resource of the story and her talent to bring Sharon to life.

Creepy music too!

Loved it!"
