Unlawful Entry

Unlawful Entry is a suspense-thriller involving a young married couple, Karen and Michael Ross, and a mentally deranged cop, Pete Davis, who has delusions of making Karen his own. In the opening scene Michael is working on a new business deal in the den, Karen is awakened from her sleep by a strange noise downstairs. She goes into the den to tell Michael about the noise. Upon her urging, Michael descends the stairs to discover that someone has broken into their house, and is still there. Michael confronts the burglar, who manages to escape out the back door. The shaken couple contact the police to inform them of the break in. Pete and his partner, Roy, arrive on the scene and Pete is immediately smitten with the beautiful Mrs. Ross. As time passes, Pete continues to visit the Ross home to check it's security more and more often, whether on duty or off...whether Michael is home or not. Michael soon becomes irritated with all of the attention that Pete is paying to his wife and forbids Pete to come around anymore. After this, strange things begin to happen to Michael. His credit cards are no longer accepted, they tow his car for outstanding tickets that Michael insists he doesn't have, mysterious calls are being made to his business partners, causing his business to be in jeopardy, and, he is set-up and arrested for major drug dealing. Michael is sent to jail and denied bail. With him in jail, Karen will be all alone...or will she?
