For Oz Blackstone, his days as a Private Enquiry Agent could soon be over. An undercover stint as a TV wrestling master of ceremonies has convinced him that he may have hidden theatrical talent - and now he's got a taste for the spotlight. So, the chance of a bit part in a movie seems like an offer he can't refuse - even though his own life is fast developing a dramatic storyline of its own, with a frightening series of accidents befalling people close to him.
When the female lead is kidnapped from the set in a bizarre echo of the movie's rollercoaster plot, fiction and reality come together in a terrifying climax. But has Oz got what it takes to save the day?
