When figure skater Samantha Gray (Lynne Frederick) married to England's businessman Alan Falconer (John Leyton), a sinister man from her past; William Haskin (Jack Watson)started stalking her, making Samantha depressed. Then the murder start.
Time Out wrote: "Walker and writer David McGillivray's most ambitious project to date attempts to shake off the low-budget horror/exploitation tag with a move into more up-market psychological suspense. If the formula is threadworn - a trail of victimisation, sexual paranoia, and murder in the wake of the heroine's wedding - at least some effort is made to locate it (rich middle class London). But things collapse disastrously in the second half. Caught between sending itself up and taking itself seriously, the film ends closer to the silliness of Francis Durbridge than to the menace of Alfred Hitchcock."
