SOMEONE’S WATCHING ME REVIEWED
“Someone’s Watching Me” was originally not considered edgy enough to be a Warner Brothers feature film. So, it was kicked over to the TV division to become a Lauren Hutton vehicle. The end result is a soft movie that plays as a cross between The Conversation and Rear Window. Lauren Hutton plays a young professional that is trying to make a go of things in her high rise. She meets a nice guy at the bar, but begins to share her doubts. She thinks she’s being watched.
Well, she’s being watched and having her calls recorded by a creepy stalker in the building across the street from her. What does he want and will he get it? Hutton does amazing work in a film that came out the same year as Carpenter’s masterpiece “Halloween”. This film was shot first, but aired a month after Halloween was dominating screens. It’s no surprise to draw the line that NBC and Warner Brothers made to make it a November TV-movie release.
It’s just that out of the two Carpenter TV-movies, I still prefer Elvis. Take that for what you will.
