A phobic female mystery writer (Candice Bergen) arrives home late one night to find her dog missing and an intruder in her house. The intruder says he's a fan and met no harm. But then a cop appears, invites himself inside and chases the kid off. But soon the writer begins to suspect the cop may not in fact be a cop, may be a hit man instead, and the plot begins to thicken.

This story is written as a play, so there are few characters, a lot of dialogue and more than a measure of surprises and intrigue. Candice Bergen provides a sterling performance as does Bryan Brown. I'll watch this movie again.

I love this movie because of its twists and turns, not to mention a terrific cast headed up by the matchless Candice Bergen.

I'm a big, big fan of Ira Levin, the late, great novelist (ROSEMARY'S BABY, THE STEPFORD WIVES, THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL, etc.) and playwright (DEATHTRAP, Broadway's longest-running thriller). That said, I wasn't really delighted by this 2003 TV-movie version of his unproduced 1996 play, FOOTSTEPS. What might have worked on a stage--one set, 5 characters, a tense situation with a few surprises--doesn't really make for a compelling film, despite everyone's best efforts.

Well, maybe not their best. Director John Badham (WAR GAMES, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, STAKEOUT, and the wonderful 1974 TV movie, REFLECTIONS OF MURDER) has certainly done better in the past. And the star, Candice Bergen, isn't all that convincing as a phobic, traumatised damsel-in-distress; her obvious intelligence and strength make her a bad fit for the role. Bryan Brown, Bug Hall (I love that name!), and Michael Murphy are the three sinister men in her life, and they've all done better work elsewhere, too.

A bestselling mystery writer (Bergen) with psychological issues (she feels responsible for a recent, real-life murder in which the perp copied one of her books) is all alone one dark-and-stormy night in her isolated island retreat. She finds a crazy teen fan (Hall) hiding in her closet. Then a local cop (Brown) arrives, and he acts even more suspiciously than the kid. Where is her beloved pet terrier, which has mysteriously disappeared? And where is her concerned husband (Murphy) while these strange men menace his fragile wife? There follows a tense series of events involving drugged drinks, incriminating videos, underwater swimming, and a flare gun, leading to a "surprise" finale that isn't much of a surprise.
