Product Description:

When a young urbanite calls to order cable TV for his apartment he gets much more than he bargained for, as the demented title character arrives and proceeds to insinuate his way into the beleaguered customer's life. Raised by television as a child and starved for human contact, the "cable guy" is a darkly hilarious carnation of the modern age. Carey's manic karaoke rendition of Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love" is a twisted highlight.

Plot Synopsis:

When Steven Kovacs orders cable TV for his apartment, he has no idea how much he'll regret it. That's because the installer sent to his home is Chip Douglas, a lonely, lisping, parasitic geek, who just might be psychotic. Chip immediately bonds with vulnerable milquetoast Steve -- and then refuses to leave him alone. Chip's wild behavior proceeds to make his victim's life a living hell, and even jeopardizes Steve's attempt to reconcile with his girlfriend.
How far will Chip go... and will Steve ever put his foot down'
