| Good "true" story, somewhat dated though, with a chilling performance from Cliff DeYoung.
This 1981 made-for-television film is a pretty good film when watching it some 20 years after the fact. While the acting and film appear very dated, the story is wonderful. Based on a true story, it's about a woman, whose husband was murdered on their honeymoon, becomes so traumatized by the killer's threats that she can no longer remember what really happened due to a combination of her mind blocking out the terrible memory and the brainwashing manipulation, rape and torture that the killer puts upon her. While most actor's acting is simply fair, Cliff DeYoung is wonderful as a psychotic and manipulative stalker.
