Description by OLDIES.com:
She's new to San Francisco and a bit lonely. Maybe that's why Cathy Palmer (Carol White) is vulnerable to Kenneth (Scott Hylands), a playful, boyishly handsome stranger about to plunge her into a living nightmare. Cathy falls in and out of love with Kenneth, then begins life anew with another man (Paul Burke) whom she marries. But Kenneth isn't over Cathy: he stalks her -- and kidnaps her newborn child.
Veteran director Mark Robson recaptures the raw-edged intensity he displayed in the Val Lewton thrillers he helmed in the 1940s. Working from a taut script by top thriller specialists Larry Cohen and Lorenzo Semple Jr., Robson layers scene after scene with disquieting dread. Daddy's Gone A-Hunting taps into the real fear of a mistake coming back to haunt us -- and delivers the nerve-wracking excitement suspense fans are always hunting.
A young woman eagerly awaits the birth of her first child -- until her psychotic ex shows up demanding atonement for the life of their aborted child: a life for a life. Creepy psychological thriller.
