The film centers around a rapist and murderer who stalks his victims and then calls them repeatedly before raping and killing them. A feminist TV anchor becomes suspicious and investigates one of her neighbors, who she believes is committing the crimes.
Eyes of a Stranger was released in 180 theaters in the United States by Warner Bros. on March 27, 1981, earning $546,724 during its opening weekend. It eventually grossed an estimated $1.1 million.
The film was originally cut for an R rating, removing many instances of violence including a decapitation from the film, leaving only the final head shot uncut. As a result many of Tom Savini's gore effects were cut out or edited. The uncut version was released on DVD as part of Warner's Twisted Terror Collection with an R-rating on the packaging.
