Around here, Judge David Johnson is know as "The Seducer." (He gave himself that nickname.)
Alone…terrified…trapped like an animal. Now she's fighting back with the only weapon she has…herself!
Morgan Fairchild makes her theatrical debut in a piece of @#$% stalker movie. Her breasts costar.
Facts of the Case
Jaime Douglas (Fairchild) is a popular L.A. anchorwoman, boasting model-like good looks and a sultry news-reading voice. She has many admirers, though no one is as committed a fan as Derek (Andrew Stevens), a voyeuristic pervert who has taken up stalking Jaime full-time. He confesses his love to her multiple times, only to be rebuffed and smacked around by her boyfriend (Michael Sarrazin).
That doesn't stop the enterprising young wacko, as he relentlessly pursues her, training his camera on her swimming pool, hiding in her bathroom closet while she bathes and, ultimately, introducing homicidal violence into their relationship.
In the end, Jaime will be stripped of all the male protectors she had and must face off with her predator using her feminine wiles and, perhaps, a nearby sharp implement.
Let's take a look at the blurb that adorns the back of the disc case: "An erotic thriller with sex, violence and nudity" and deconstruct it.
Anchor Bay has done this half-baked pile a solid with the DVD presentation: a lovely 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer (supported with a mono audio mix), feature commentary by producers Irwin Yablans, Bruce Cohn Curtis and director David Schmoeller, and three featurettes ("Remembering The Seduction," a roundtable discussion with cast and crew, "Remembering the Locations and Production" and "The Seduction and the Law," a goofy feature about the psychology of stalking).
Without Morgan Fairchild's exposed nipples, this is a half-baked made-for-TV movie.
Move along now. Nothing to see here.
