      Audience Member If you enjoy Canadian horror, then you know who William Fruet is, the maker of Death Weekend (released here as The House By the Lake), Cries In the Night (better known as Funeral Home), redneck rampage film Trapped (AKA Baker County U.S.A.), Spasms and the kinda-sorta Alien by way of animal experimentation oddity Blue Monkey. This time, he's taking on the genre of adult thriller, which by 1984 is kind of what giallo was leaning toward and then would completely become in the wake of Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct. The ideas are the same — identity, secrets, sex, shame, violence — but it's missing the great music and the fashion for the most part. If you're nostalgic for a film that aired on USA Up All Night, this movie is for you. This is the type of universe where a peeping tom is the hero, where a psychologist can see past his perversion — or encourage it — to see the man he is inside and where every other woman is evil. This was, of course, followed by Bedroom Eyes II, which is way better because it has Wings Hauser, Veronica Hart and Linda Blair in the cast, as well as Chuck Vincent directing, and that movie also has no compunctions about feeling sweaty and filthy while this one seems clean and wrapped up, like some of the 80s felt. This one does gets points for having its female antagonist repeatedly beat the protagonist up, including a slapstick bonk at the end as the police take her away. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A stockbroker who jogs to work off office stress begins to cut short his running route to peep on a woman and becomes a suspect in her murder. Decent story. I must say the psychiatrist's hypnosis therapy with a camera flash looked suspect.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member My dad has a habit of buying several cheap B-level boobie movies and calls them art. I decided to watch this one with my friend and we actually felt it was a pretty good movie. Cheesy 80s suspense, 80s boobies...and an actual plot. Go figure. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Stock broker's passion for jogging ramps up when he finds a kinky window to peer through on his running route. Predated the erotic thriller video boom by a few years so may have been ahead of its time back in 1984. A modest Canadian hit that was picked up by Fox video and popular enough to eventually produce a sequel. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Could have been a lot better.
