Someone's Watching Me! (1978)
Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau also appears in the movie as a lesbian with a tough side. Unfortunately Hutton and Barbeau don't hook up and do the nasty but then again it is a t.v. movie and there isn't any nudity to be seen at all.
In my opinion Someone's Watching Me! steals greatly from Alfred Hitchcock. One would have to be blind to not see the countless comparisons. Its mainly a Rear Window ripoff but there are elements of other Hitchcock greats as well such as Vertigo. Even the opening credits plays like a low budget version of North By Northwest. Hitchcock ripoff or not, I still found it to be a decent time passer and Carpenter shows his talent in this early television flick. If only there were some bare breasts and a bit of blood this thing would probably have a bigger fan base. Worth a watch for all Carpenter fans.
