Following a one night stand a radio DJ finds out his paramour might just be a trifle more infatuated than he would like.

The forgotten slasher film? Along with Peeping Tom and Psycho one of the earliest films to exploit the fear of kitchen cutlery. For a modern audience some of the surprises have become cliche now, but Play Misty was there first. Still packs a couple of scares though and a solid directorial debut from Eastwood.
