Editorial Reviews

They don't see him, but he's there. A stranger is watching; plotting; planning; and anticipating every move they make. Then he strikes. He imprisons a little girl and a famous reporter in the dank maze of tunnels beneath New York's Grand Central Station. The kidnapper is a remorseless psychopath who wants to collect a ransom, then murder his captives. His victims' only hope is their own wits - and the aid of the dazed and desperate homeless people who roam this urban netherworld. Kate Mulgrew is heartrendingly believable as the reporter and Rip Torn gives a harrowing performance as the kidnapper in this nightmarish shocker based on the Mary Higgins Clark suspense novel and directed by Sean S. Cunningham (Friday the 13th). A Stranger Is Watching: You won't be able to look away.

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.

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.

I read the novel by Mary Higgins Clark and it was great. The movie wasn't as exciting as the book. The book was so exciting that i found myself holding my breath. But, the movie was similar to the book. Ronald Thompson knows he never killed Nina Peterson... yet in two days the state of Connecticut will take his life, having found him guilty via due process of law. But Thompson's death will not stop the pain and anger of Nina's husband, Steve. Thompson's death will not still the fears of Nina's daughter, witness to her mother's brutal slaying. Not even the love and friendship of Sharon Martin, a journalist who is slowly becoming a part of their world, will ever erase their bitter memories. Only time, perhaps, will heal their wounds. But in the shadows a stranger waits, a cunning psychopath who has killed before, who has unfinished business at the Peterson home and kidnapps Sharon and Steve and Nina's daughter. I enjoyed watching this movie and if your looking for a good mystery movie, "A Stranger is Watching" is a good pick.

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.

This movie caught my attention with it's name, "A Stranger Is Watching", more or less because I enjoy a good horror movie. This movie had none of that. What you get is mostly a very uninteresting movie about a killer with a good chase scene coming too late to redeem this uninspired B-movie.

The only true suspense was wondering when it would ever get off the ground and really get interesting. Long story short, it never happened, the best part of the movie was the title.

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!

I bought this movie only a few days ago and I have already watched it over 5 times. I just can't get enough of it. Rip Torn and Kate Mulgrew worked wonderfully together. There is only one thing I would want changed and that is the ending I think they should have added to it instead of stopping it where they did. But with or without a new ending the movie was a real treat to watch. I recommend it to anyone who is a Torn or Mulgrew fan, also anyone who just wants to watch a really good suspense movie.

I was working when this Movie was being filmed and I saw first hand the Drama and Crime as they went "deep" into the tunnels of Grand Central Terminals and the areas not really known to the public. This Movie is about a murder in Long Island and a witness to this murder who places the blame on the wrong person. The husband of the victim works for a News Magazine and years later as they are going to execute the wrong man another News company, T.V. Division reporter who also is dating the widowed Newsman decides that she wants to look at the angle of the murder and try to prove that he is not the one. Action Movie and a little mystery involved as who reall is involved. Great Cast Kate Mulgrew T.V. News cast Reporter and Rip Torn as the real murderer
