Eyes Of A Stranger

"Very Good"

Eyes Of A Stranger Review


Surprisingly gruesome, this 1981 thriller is noteable primarily for the first feature film appearance of young Jennifer Jason Leigh, playing a girl so traumatized by her past that she's become hysterically deaf, mute, and blind. And wouldn't you know it her dumb sister (Lauren Tewes, "Julie McCoy" of The Love Boat fame) is a newscaster taking on the local serial killer with in-your-face broadcasts and Nancy Drew-style sleuthing. Director Ken Wiederhorn keeps things pretty terrifying for a slasher flick, with copious gore and inventive murders: The opening sequence lands one poor guy's head in an aquarium. It ain't Rear Window, but it'll get your gal to snuggle a little closer, I promise.
