The killer ( find out for yourselves! )
Poor Jake just got fired from his latest acting gig.
Then he catches his girlfriend, Carol, fucking another man. Since the house belongs to Carol, he's now homeless AND unemployed.
During acting class, Jake meets a man called Sam. Afterwards, they go to a bar to talk.
Sam ends up giving Jake a housesitting job. But that's not all, Sam introduces Jake to a telescope, which enables him to peek at their neighbor, Gloria. Sam informs Jake, that Gloria puts on a "show" every night at the same time.
Before you know it, Jake is addicted to Gloria. He then starts to follow her. He quickly notices that she's being stalked by a tall man.
Jake follows her to a beach, at which point he informs her that she's being followed. But, before she has a chance to say anything, the tall man steals Gloria's purse. Jake chases the man and recovers her purse.
A short time later, Jake witnesses Gloria's murder. While searching for clues to the killer's identity, he gets involved with a porn star called Holly. She doesn't know that she unwittingly helped the killer.
Soon, Jake and Holly will be fighting for their lives.
Welcome to a world filled with movie-making, voyeurism, love, hate, betrayal, professional fornicators and murder... It's just another day in HollyWEIRD...

DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
I really didn't think much of this movie when I first saw it - back in the 80's - but now I love it.
I think it's REALLY UNDERRATED, and A LOT of fun!
FYI: For those that don't know, Barbara Crampton has a small, but VERY funny and sexy, part in this movie.
