Intimate Stranger


by Tuna

Intimate Stranger is a made-for-cable erotic thriller starring Deborah Harry. She plays a singer who does phone sex as a day job. One night, a creep calls, and wants a three way with her and the woman he has tied to his bed. He proceeds to kill the woman by slitting her throat, and then promises that Harry will be next. She goes to the cops, but is laughed out of the station. Beat cop James Russo overhears and believes her, and thinks the case could be his shortcut to a detective job. Since he is acting on his own, his investigative procedures include unauthorized wiretaps and illegal access of miscellaneous confidential data.

An erotic thriller should be both erotic and thrilling, and this one suffers on both counts.

Lack of erotica: There was a sex relationship between Harry's sister and Russo, but no skin was shown. In fact the entire film is light on nudity.

Lack of thrills: There is never any real sense that Harry is in danger.

Moreover, the entire film is a little too dark, and the transfer is weak.
