| Nothing special, but decent enough
Night Terror is not a particularly original film and clearly takes more than a little bit of influence from Steven Spielberg's suspenseful masterpiece 'Dual'. In spite of this, however, Night Terror is a decent romp that does at least entertain for most of its duration. The plot is very simple and focuses on a woman out on the road by herself. It just so happens that there's also a psycho around and when she witnesses him killing a police officer; she finds herself on the wrong end of his attention as she is stalked through the road by the psychopath. The film was made for TV and the budget restrictions are obvious because the film does not lift itself above the ordinary; but it keeps the focus on the plot and the suspense and this is enough to carry it on through. The lead actress is Valerie Harper, who apparently has a lot of TV credits to her name. She gives a decent performance; it not especially brilliant but at least she remains interesting for the duration. Richard Romanus is not memorable enough for me in his psycho role, however. It all boils down to the token and expected ending and while I would say that the film is slightly too long on the whole; it's still decent enough stuff and is worth a look if you can find it.
