A melodrama of terror and suspense. The Creeper is a serial killer who has both evaded capture, but begs to be stopped by the clues that he leaves behind. Steve is a cop in trouble and on suspension, with a wife who used to be on the stage. He and Georgia are in a marriage on the rocks, and Steve hits the bars to get away. Talking with a reporter in a bar, clues about the Creeper are discussed. Is it a mad man, or maybe a woman? What’s his motive, and is there a pattern in the way the killings have gone down? The pattern points to Steve’s wife Georgia as the next potential victim.
Back at the apartment, Georgia hasn’t been feeling her best, and suspicions build as wierd neighbors try to be helpful. Everybody who crosses Pat’s path sets her nerves on edge.
The lock on the apartment hasn’t been working, and a man from Georgia’s past surprises her when she discovers that he let himself in. Is there anything to his accusations of her being loose with the neighbors while Steve’s away? Is her ex-lover there to protect her, or to harrass her?
Paranoia grows for both Georgia and Steve. Is there any danger? Will Georgia be safe once the locksmith arrives?
