Grimy obscene-phone call chiller with a New York discotheque background. Busboy Sal Mineo, guardian to a brain-damaged sister, writhes in bed while club hostess/deejay Juliet Prowse worries on the other end of the line. Jan Murray of the vice squad acts so creepy that Juliet thinks he’s the maniac. With Frank Campanella, Margot Bennet, and Elaine Stritch as Juliet’s lesbian boss, who tries to help in her own way. Title song and discotheque hits written by Al Kasha and Bob Gaudio (of the Four Seasons)
