Review: This movie is a cautionary tale about a 14-year-old girl name Lisa, who is so unbelievably boy crazy that it’s beyond laughable. Her and her friend find attractive men out on the streets and take random pictures of them. They even have a shrine book with all the men’s pictures they take with hearts around their pictures, even though they know nothing of these men despite what they look like. (Stage 5 stalkers) and then get their license plate number and call to find out their information. When they do get their numbers, they call them up and pretend like they’re older so they can flirt with them. One day Lisa comes across a man who she finds very attractive and finds his license plate number to look him up. She begins a phone correspondence with him for some time and in return he seems very interested in her. As time goes by, she realizes that she needs to pretend as if she’s older, so she begins to tell him all of her mom’s information for some strange reason. (This is the part I don’t understand) It gets kind of confusing because she wants to go see him at the restaurant he owns, so she tells Richard on the phone that she’ll be at his restaurant that night and will be wearing a sexy white dress. She brings her mother with to go see him, and Lisa convinces her mom to wear the white dress to the restaurant, even though her mom doesn’t want to. While at the restaurant for awhile, Lisa finally ends up spotting Richard. He quickly glances at Lisa at the booth she was sitting at but looks away just as quickly, while her mom goes to the bathroom. But then Richard bumps right into Lisa’s mom, looks her up and down and seductively says “The woman in white!” But Lisa’s mom walks away abruptly and all fluttered. But because in Lisa’s mind, Richard briefly saw her, this was Lisa’s chance to write down on a napkin, “You’ve seen me” with a lipstick kiss on it. Which of course Richard thinks that meant it came from the lady in white, Lisa’s mom. Richard then finds out all of Lisa’s mom’a information from the credit card she left at the restaurant and then begins the stalking on his part, since he thought it was her that was making the seductive phone calls. He goes into her shop she owns which is a flower shop and he hears a familiar catchphrase from Lisa’s mom that Lisa used on Richard all the time… “Hi, guy” They both say that to everyone as a nickname so now he knows it’s her (or at least think is it) He ends up aggressively stalking her and enters her flower delivery truck one night and left several cigarettes in the ashtray. She now knows something weird is happening. Lo and behold Richard is not what he seems, as we are well aware right from the very beginning of the movie. He is not just some innocent cute guy that Lisa thought he was. He is the town’s Candlelight Killer. He breaks into the apartments of attractive women, leaves a message saying he’s going to kill them on the answering machines (ahh the days before caller ID and traced callers) and then he kills them. Therefore, Lisa and her mom basically fall right into his lap. Well as you can guess, he breaks into Lisa’s house, kidnaps her and ties her up. Her mom comes home and finds Richard with a terrified Lisa and.. long story short they fight him off and finally end up killing him. Oh but not before they run into Lisa’s room and the mom tells her to call 911 while a tearful Lisa tells her mom she took her phone out of her room (for calling her a horrible name earlier on) As if this was some sort of retribution for punishing Lisa for being the biggest boy crazy brat in any movie I’ve ever seen. Well.. that’s all I’ve got. The movie is one of those rainy day lifetime movies that you can catch that is kind of entertaining but still also very predictable with some questions also left unanswered. All I know is if I were Lisa’s mom, I would never let her get away with half the things she said to me or did. Her mom was very patient with her. Anyways.. Moms of young girls out there, be careful and make sure you know what they’re doing and who they’re talking to at all times. Especially now with the internet and social media. This movie was made 30 years ago and the themes in this movie still applies today.
