- HORROR (1998) Run Time: 90 minutes
Lynn Richard's, (Colette O'Connell) the spitfire new Talk Show DJ on KBST in Los Angeles tempts her audiences into thinking about
the illusions and themes of life. Balancing the jealousies of fellow DJ and Psychologist Angie Mason, (Morgan Fairchild) the
expectations of her Manager, (Richard Lynch) and the station owner's obsession with ratings - Lynn is on a collision path with the
realities of life. Constant nightmares of her father Henry's (Bruce Weitz) alcohol abuse culminate with the horrible accident that
killed her mother and permanently impaired her sister, Carrie.
As a patient unleashes a bloody escape from a nearby Psychiatric Ward, a secret evil from Lynn's past is reborn. As Lynn battles
the low ratings, she's informed by Carrie's therapist that Henry has been paroled after 12 years of imprisonment. Suddenly, Lynn
receives a call while "on the air". The voice, who identifies himself as Adam, whispers:” I’m a fan, your most loyal fan".
As Lynn’s show gathers a following, the body count begins. Within 24 hours Lynn's mechanic and irritable neighbor are found
murdered. Adam's voice calls in again - "I am the bitter truth, death is what we need". Henry encounters Lynn hoping to find a
forgiven past with his daughters. Lynn, however, spurns him, worried for Carrie's safety.
The next day detectives trace the chilling mystery voice on Lynn's talk show to her station owner's office. Baffled, they are also
suspicious of Henry. As Lynn's quivering voice takes over L.A.'s evening air waves - two more murders occur: Henry and a
Detective. The final turn occurs as an angered Lynn beckons Adam "on air" and devastates him with her decision not to allow the
radio station to exploit his bloody quest any further - she cuts him off her talk show.
In retaliation, Adam kidnaps Carrie and plans a dangerous rendezvous with Lynn. All of L.A. waits - turning into the station as the
police lose her trail. Carrie lies gagged and tied in the den of a murderer as a chilling confrontation between Lynn and Adam
reminds all listeners what can happen when you cross the line from "Fan" to "Fanatic".
