In the spirit of Friday the 13th, Academy Cinemas is bringing you a spooky classic starring Faye Dunaway and Tommy Lee Jones!

The Eyes of Laura Mars put an original spin on the "women in peril" plot staple by giving us Faye Dunaway as a fashion photographer disturbed by visions of real violence echoed in her flashy, S&M-influenced work. The visions start coming closer to home as her female friends are butchered and their copies of her work vandalised.

Good-looking cop Neville (Tommy Lee Jones) argues that her art is responsible, but nonetheless starts an affair with her. Hints are dropped that the killer might be someone close to her, like obsessive ex-con driver Tommy (Brad Dourif) or her possessive ex-husband Michael (Raul Julia). Evocative scenes of 70s' New York nightclub excess, and the strikingly perverse photographs of Helmut Newton, now create a period 70s' flavour to this flawed psychic thriller.

Dunaway's performance is suitably overwrought and the young, slimline Jones is at once attractive and off-key.
