    Сast and Crew

    Production

    According to lead actress Kathleen Beller, the film differed from her earlier thrillers - such as Are You in the House Alone? (1978) and No Place to Hide (1981) - by "[not taking] itself too seriously". In an interview, she explained her tendency to portray victims in films is encouraged by her "the color and size of [her] big brown eyes", "the way [she interprets] roles" and "the episodic roles [she] did while [she] was growing up". Her casting in the film was an unusual one: according to the actress, she received a call from her agent about a script, read it immediately, and drove to the studio an hour later, expecting a meeting. However, when she arrived, she was asked if she could start working right away. She took the role because of "the whirlwind casting", and the fact that she had not worked for seven months, since a guest spot on Glitter.
