The quiet suburban world of Pam and John Allen is shattered when a strange man begins stalking them with late night phone calls and sudden disturbing appearances. It emerges that the man, Homer Trent, was a part of Pam's teenage past at an orphanage. He was besotted with her then, and was eventually imprisoned for her rape. Now free, Trent is intent on claiming Pam.


Critical reception

Britmovie called Return of a Stranger a "Creepy yet risible Brian Clemens scripted quota-quickie thriller from low-budget specialists the Danziger Brothers";[2] while TV Guide gave it two out of four stars, and called it a "Creepy, very suspenseful thriller...Taut direction by Varnel and good performances from the principals make this one memorable."[3]
