Description:Disc Jockey Dave (Cling Eastwood) has a one-night-stand with Evelyn (Jessica Walter) a listener to his radio show. She shows up the next day with groceries and, over the next weeks, gets more and more clingy. Meanwhile, Dave's old girlfriend Tobie (Donna Mills) comes back to town and Dave wants to get back together with her. But when he tells Evelyn he wants no more of her, she goes crazy, showing up during an interview and blowing a job opportunity for Dave, attempting suicide in his bathroom, trashing his house and attacking his maid with a knife. She gets put away, but a while later, she is let out. She manages to trick Tobie into taking her on as a roommate. When a cop shows up to make sure Tobie is OK, Evelyn kills him. When Dave shows up, he finds Tobie tied up. Evelyn attacks him with a knife. They fight until she falls to her death off the deck.
