 Tonight's Clue ~ Lonely monster meets sexy girl and whisks her away to his underwater pad.

Halloween Movie Marathon

Night 13 ~ Single White Female

Tagline - How do you lock the terror out... when you already invited it in?

Directed by Barbet Schroeder (Reversal of Fortune and Desperate Measures), based on the novel "SWF Seeks Same" by John Lutz, and released on August 14, 1992 by Columbia Pictures (Rated R). Alison Jones (Bridget Fonda) is madly in love with Sam Rawson (Steven Weber) and happily planning their wedding. That is until Sam's ex-wife calls and Alison finds out that they just had sex earlier that day. What is a girl to do? Kick his sorry butt out and place an ad for a new roommate. Unfortunately Alison does not pick the right roommate.

This movie is a fun watch. I remember seeing this at the drive-in with a bunch of girlfriends. It still holds up 24 years later.

We all know that Hedy is the wrong choice but Alison is not as quick as the rest of us. She will just have to learn the hard way and that's what makes for a fun ride. It's great to see Hedy slowly take over Alison's life as she continues to loose her grasp on reality. Not that she had much of a grasp to start with!

The movie becomes a bit campy and over the top as the big ending starts to unfold but that's the beauty of it. Watching Hedy go crazy and Alison kicking her butt is just great. I have always been a huge fan of Steven Weber (most will remember him from the TV show "Wings") and lets just say his final scene in this movie...priceless!!!

Take a look at the original trailer.

Some trivia about the movie...
1. Bridget Fonda had the choice of playing either the Allie role or the Hedy role. She ended up choosing to play Allie, because she said it was a harder role.   
2. Like most old apartment buildings the building in this movie does not contain a floor 13. You can see the floor numbers on the elevator in a couple shots.   
3. The Ansonia on the Upper West Side of Manhattan was used for the apartment building. The interiors were shot on a sound stage but the scenes in the stairwells were shot at The Ansonia.   
4. Whoopi Goldberg auditioned for the role of Allison Jones.   
5. To prepare for their fight to the finish scenes, both Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh took several self-defense lessons.

Coffin For A Cutie Compact


  1. I can't decide if this should be on my to watch list or if it'll freak me out too much! ��

  2. I need to watch this, never have and it sounds great

  3. Eek, the high heels scene! Definitely over top a la Sliver, etc. but I think that's what made 90s movies the best!

  4. It's been ages since I saw this, but I liked it. JJL plays a great wacko!

  5. Totally love this movie!! Absolutely psychologically creepy!! One of my favs!

  6. This movie freaks my freak every time I see it! So good!

  7. I will have to watch this movie, it looks good.

  8. I watched this movie many years ago. I think it's time for a re-watching! Awesome trivia!

  9. Good thing I've never had roommates.

  10. I haven't seen this movie but I might give it look this year.

  11. This is one of those movies that, when it came out, I was too young to see and I've never gone back to see it.

  12. I have never seen this, but hope to watch it this year.

  13. Ack!I couldn't remember the name of this yesterday lol! I was thinking of this movie though! It is a creepy one!

  14. Great movie! I have seen this one and it is quite intense!

  15. I wanted to see this one when it came out, but it's still not too late. Hope that it doesn't scare me too bad. :)

  16. One I’ve actually seen. I’ve always thought Jennifer Jason Leigh was a great actress. I remember thinking it was a bit cheesy, but still fun.
