Investigative television journalist Deborah Balin (Lee Grant) falls foul of a mentally deranged viewer and is brutally attacked in her home. She is taken into hospital by her friendly news show producer, Gary Baylor (William Shatner) and cared for by a dedicated nurse, Sheila Munroe (Linda Purl).
Deborah soon discovers, however, that far from her horrifying ordeal being over, it is in reality only just beginning.
Lurking in a darkened corridor near Deborah’s room is the psychopath who attacked her, a man called Colt Hawker (Michael Ironside). Deborah’s recent broadcast triggered off a painful memory from his unhappy childhood and now he intends to kill her.
It is not his intention that she should die easily. He is prowling with a six-inch blade and a camera to capture the agony on her face during the diabolically gruesome murder he has planned for her.
