Against the backdrop of California's beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea, radio disc jockey Dave Garver (Clint Eastwood) faces the unforeseen repercussions of a one-night stand with a beautiful stranger. In the deeply psychological and harrowing thriller, Eastwood paints a nuanced portrait of the social climate of the Golden State in the early 1970s. This film, with its artful fusion of suspense and commentary, serves as a testament to the power of the horror genre. Preceded by two episodes of Bucky.
