Someone's Watching Me! is a gripping thriller from 1978 that centers around Leigh Michaels (played by Lauren Hutton), a talented television director who moves to Los Angeles to start a new job. From the moment she arrives, she begins to feel like she's being watched. Initially, she dismisses it as paranoia but soon realizes that she's being stalked by an unknown person.

As the days go by, the stalker's behavior becomes increasingly menacing. Leigh starts receiving eerie phone calls and anonymous gifts, and her apartment is broken into. She seeks help from the police, but they're unable to offer much assistance as the stalker has yet to commit a serious crime.

Leigh's only ally in this terrifying situation is Paul (played by David Birney), a handsome neighbor who takes an interest in her safety. Together, they try to piece together clues and uncover the identity of the stalker before things escalate even further.

What makes Someone's Watching Me! truly stand out is its tense, claustrophobic atmosphere. Director John Carpenter masterfully builds suspense through his use of tight shots and ominous music. The viewer is constantly on edge, wondering when the stalker will strike next.

Another unique aspect of the film is its portrayal of a strong, independent female lead. Leigh is a smart and capable woman who refuses to be a victim, even when the odds are stacked against her. She's a refreshing departure from the damsels in distress that typically populate thrillers from this era.

The supporting cast is also excellent. David Birney delivers a charming and understated performance as Paul, while Adrienne Barbeau steals every scene she's in as Leigh's brassy best friend Sophie.

Overall, Someone's Watching Me! is a thrilling and well-crafted film that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It's a testament to John Carpenter's talent as a director and proves that Lauren Hutton is more than just a pretty face. Highly recommended for fans of classic suspense thrillers.

Someone's Watching Me! is a 1978 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 37 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6.
