In San Francisco, the criminal psychologist Helen Hudson is specialized in serial-killers. During a trial, the accused Daryll Lee Cullum kills a police officer and tries to kill her and she becomes agoraphobic. Now Helen lives a reclusive life with her gay friend Andy that helps her. Sometime later, there is a wave of crimes and Detectives M.J. Monahan and Reuben Goetz are investigating the murder cases. Helen identifies that the murderer is copycatting notorious serial-killers and she anonymously contacts the Police Department. After fourteen phone calls, she is identified by the police. Detectives M.J. and Reuben visit her and Helen teams up with them and prepares the profile of the killer that wants to be famous. But soon the copycat killer Peter Foley contacts and stalks Helen and M.J. and Reuben give protection to her. Will they be capable to stop Foley before the next murder?

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Years later, Sigourney Weaver would state that she was most proud of her work in this film. She worked hard to portray the mindset of an agoraphobic, and has regretted that the movie was lost in a shuffle of thrillers at the time and is not better remembered. See more »

Quotes Helen Hudson: Fuck you.
Peter Foley: What?
Helen Hudson: You heard me, you little twerp. Do you think I'm afraid of you?
Peter Foley: I know you are.
Helen Hudson: I know all about you. You're just a sad, second rate, boring, impotent little copycat.
[laughter]
Peter Foley: Watch it, bitch, or I will slice that smile off your face, do you hear me?
Helen Hudson: Daryll Lee couldn't get it up either.
Peter Foley: DO YOU HEAR ME?
[Helen spits in Peter's face]
Peter Foley: Okay, I see, Helen. Nice try. You wanna know a little secret? Huh? I'm on to your trick. I won't kill you fast no matter how much you're gonna want me to.
