He Knows You’re Alone (1980)

Directed by Armand Mastroinanni.  Written by Scott Parker.  Starring Don Scardino, Caitllin O’Heaney, Elizabeth Kemp, Tom Rolfing, Patsy Pease, Dana Barron, Paul Gleason, Russell Todd and Tom Hanks (in his film debut).

Plot: a young woman is stalked by a serial killer.


Ray Carlton (Rolfing) kills bride-to-be’s.  When he sets his sights on Amy Jensen (O’Heaney), he starts stalking her and killing all her friends one by one.  But we felt that Marvin (Scardino) was the only likable person in the film, so we really didn’t care who else died.  I mean, everyone was cheating on everyone else the entire movie.  And it’s all a big Halloween ripoff, too.  There are shots taken directly from that much better film.

DJ just kept saying “I can’t take this movie”, but we kept watching hoping it would get better.  It didn’t.  And the end is just so pathetic.  We nearly hated it.  If not for “Marvin” and Tom Hanks maybe we would have.

Our score: 23.
