Comments: Kind of a weird cool apartment, not much more than a few hundred square feet but with a dozen rooms. I couldn't stop trying to figure the floor plan for the entire run time

This might have seemed good back in the 80s, and it is a very professionally over-stylized production, but it's too slick for me today. It's relatively creepy throughout and there's a little gore moment at the end, but the main players are too well dressed and, my god, the hair and makeup department must have worked round the clock

I really don't know why I watched this and I must have obtained some bad bootleg because the soundtrack is definitely from some other film

Summary: After several strangely threatening calls from a local salesman, a homemaker becomes increasingly afraid to answer her apartment door.
