Never Talk to Strangers ★★ 1995 (R)

Sarah Taylor (DeMornay) is an uptight criminal psychologist who gets involved with handsome stranger Tony Ramirez (Banderas) while working on the case of a serial killer (Stanton). Then Sarah finds herself the target of an increasingly malevolent stalker—and she has lots of suspects to choose from. Typical woman-in-peril film with equally standard frights but the leads certainly look good (and Banderas is a fine sex object in a bit of role reversal). Filmed in Toronto. 86m/C VHS, DVD . Rebecca De Mornay, Antonio Banderas, Harry Dean Stanton, Dennis Miller, Len Cariou, Beau Starr; D: Peter Hall; W: Lewis Green, Jordan Rush; C: Elemer Ragalyi; M: Pino Donaggio.
