Film Review: “Eyes of a Stranger” (1981)

eyes_of_a_stranger

From the writer of “Friday the 13th Part 2”, the director of “Return of the Living Dead 2”, and starring a young Jennifer Jason Leigh, this highly suspenseful slasher kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. What a hidden gem! I’m surprised this film isn’t more well known. The premise: Someone is stalking and murdering women in the Miami area. Police are baffled, but local TV news anchor Jane Harris thinks she knows who the killer is, a creepy man who lives in her apartment complex! Can she find enough evidence before he kills again?! I thought the acting was realistic, the characters were interesting, the film moved at a great pace, and some good unexpected gore effects as well.

3.0 out of 4.0 stars.
