Criminal psychologist Sarah Taylor (Rebecca De Mornay), normally guarded emotionally, finds her walls coming down after a chance meeting with ponytailed babe Tony (Antonio Banderas). Vacillating between rebuffing his affection and literally sinking her teeth into his rear, she becomes further unhinged when she starts to receive anonymous threats. It’s a rogues’ gallery of potential perpetrators: horny neighbor Cliff (Dennis Miller), abusive father Henry (Len Cariou), potentially multiple personality serial killer Max (Harry Dean Stanton) – or is it possible Tony isn’t a random stranger after all? A movie that intercuts trust-falls with passionate sex, Never Talk to Strangers is a demented erotic thrillers gem in a Toronto-plays-NYC Christmas setting.
