A fake Fabergé egg, and a fellow Agent's death, lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. forces.
Wayne Stracton, an unscrupulous psychopathic criminal, kidnaps the teenage Julie Burdock and buries her in a small box with air for only 83 hours. He demands half a million dollars from her father and gives him most detailed instructions on how to deliver the money. Meanwhile the FBI frantically tries to locate Julie, knowing that the kidnaper won't care for her after he's received the money and even less if he doesn't.Written by

The fact that this actually happened (to Barbara Mackle, who wrote a book about her experience that this movie is based on) makes it even creepier. And the fact that the man who kidnapped her is now a doctor (Gary Steven Krist) is frightening. The fact that he thinks everyone should forgive and forget (and even wrote a book of his own) tells me that he has no idea what he did to that girl or what could have happened to her. It's been a while since I saw the movie, but watching it gave me the creeps, thinking that someone could do that to another person. Good movie.
