It plays just like the typical cheesy 80s' flick, but with good acting from most of the actors. The main problem is not the stars, but the characters themselves, they are so bland, one dimensional, and I just couldn't care about them, even when the lead is mugged at a train station by three leather-clad thugs, although I did feel a sense of satisfaction in seeing him get his own back later on.
Alas, there was actually some promise here, as the storyline looks great in writing. Young advertising executive John (played by Joseph Bottoms), accidently goes blind whilst remembering his missing girlfriend. The doctors however, can't find actually find anything wrong with his eyesight. A world-famous surgeon (who just happens to be in the era) informs him about a great new experimental device, which will allows him to be able to see with the aid of a computer interface and brain electrodes. Meanwhile, a taxi driver is taking young women up to their apartments, giving them gas, and performing amateur surgery on them. Their paths inevitably cross, and John must try to stop the psychopath.
It's very slow-moving, with some scenes going for a very long time without any dialogue, and the script falls flat in many places. On the plus side, I found it so boring that I think it might potentially cure insomnia. I have given 'Blind Date' two stars because I've seen much worse, the idea was good, and the obscure 1980s music, by unknown bands, is actually quite catchy.
The lead character is not all that sympathetic, seemingly spending all his time spying on unsuspecting women, the women are mostly all treated as objects (some of the victims have little or no audible dialogue) and for a thriller there isn't really all that many thrills.
The pluses for this movie are:
Kirstie Alley as leads sympathetic girlfriend, sadly Alley is wasted.
Star Trek TNG's Marina Sirtis has a brief scene as one of the killer's victims
The late Lana Clarkson makes an appearence as an object of one of the lead's obsessions.
Also the Greek locations are nice.
All in all, I couldn't really recommend this unless you really didn't have anything else to watch.
