Filmed in Toronto by Falling for You Prods. Ltd. and BBS Prods. Executive producer, Stanley M. Brooks; producer, Adam Haight; director, Eric Till; writers , Tim Kring, Paul Eric Myers; based on Mitch Giannunzio’s play “Last Tag”; Word’s all over town that a serial killer’s wiping out blondes after gifting them with silver hearts on bracelets. The murderer heaves his victims through windows from a high-rise building (hence the lugubrious title). Blond Meg (Garth), traumatized as a child, inexplicably sets herself up at a singles bar. Paul (Mandylor), a goofy, bespectacled stranger with slicked-back hair, picks her up. Unbelievably, in the light of the newscasts about the killer, she goes to his high-rise apartment, then takes him to her apartment for a bit of loose living.
Paul makes love to her before turning nasty, and drops her out the window. But all Meg loses is her memory, and apparently doesn’t recognize Paul when he turns up because he has removed his glasses and tousled his hair.
A less-than-impressive subplot involves Billy Dee Williams as the veteran police detective who’s forced to partner with a new homicide detective (Currie Graham); ostensibly the byplay adds texture to the meller. It doesn’t.
Director Till brings only minor tension to the silly goings-on, and Garth and Mandylor offer little that’s convincing or even interesting. Williams is wasted; Graham demonstrates energy. Peter Outerbridge, as Meg’s ex-b.f., acts sincere. Kay Tremblay plays Garth’s neighbor, who appears in the only true horror scene in the exercise; Helen Shaver adds a stylish bit as a divorcee in a bar, but the scene’s purposeless.
Production designer David Davis tries giving the overwrought program polish, but his good work’s in vain. Other tech credits suffice.
