Lunatics: A Love Story is a 1991 comedy romance film with neo-noir (especially psycho-noir) connections written and directed by Josh Becker, starring Ted Raimi, Deborah Foreman and Bruce Campbell. The film tells the story of a young, paranoid aspiring poet who, after an accidental phone conversation with a seemingly sweet woman, is forced to overcome his worries in order to win her heart. The film’s music was composed by Joseph LoDuca, and was edited by Kaye Davis.


In a rough area in Los Angeles, an aspiring poet has spent six months without leaving his apartment because of his obsessive delusions concerning cruel doctors, rappers, and spiders. Meanwhile, a woman who appears to curse things by wanting to help is dumped by her boyfriend and finds herself flat broke on the streets of LA. Soon she runs into a local gang. Due to a telephone glitch, our hero calls her at a phone booth trying to dial a "talk line" and invites her to his place. There they are forced to aid each other in overcoming their particular problems.[1]
