Plot: Sliver Heights has everything a girl could want. Panoramic views of the city, a fully functional gym and a voyeuristic landlord with a minor oedipal complex and psychotic tendencies. One day, one of the tenants has an accident. First she looks out the window, then she looks the wrong way and finally she looks like pavement pizza. This leaves a vacant room, which Carly Norris takes a fancy to. Shes a 30 something executive who has never had that much success with men. But, hey, isnt that a perfectly eligible voyeuristic landlord with a minor oedipal complex and psychotic tendencies?

Trivia: There are 10 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- The script originally called for full male frontal nudity, but William Baldwin changed his mind after the scenes had been shot.
- Ira Levin was reluctant to sell the rights to his book. He had only been pleased with the movie adaptation of Rosemarys Baby (1968) out of all the attempts to film his novels. When producer Robert Evans, who had produced Rosemarys Baby (1968), got wind of this, he sent Levin a copy of Roman Polanskis autobiography, with all the mentions of Evans salvaging the film highlighted. The ploy worked and Levin sold the rights to Evans for $250,000.
- During filming, a crew was sent to Hawaii to film an active volcano for the opening credits. During the flyover, the volcano erupted, and the helicopter carrying the crew crashed. No one was killed, but all film was lost. The opening credit scene is referenced in the film by the crystal volcano in Zekes Room.
