Detective Bobby Corcoran and his partner, Detective Larson, are on the hunt for a vicious serial killer.

As the detectives pursue the case, they uncover evidence suggesting that one of them may be responsible for the mysterious deaths.

Sandra Brennan of AllMovie gave the film one and a half stars out of five, and said: "In this crime thriller, a pair of police detectives investigates a series of related killings. As the evidence mounts, it becomes chillingly apparent that one of the two gumshoes is the guilty party." Both Video Movie Guide 2002 and VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever gave the film two out of five stars. Entertainment Weekly awarded the film a B- grade and wrote: "Despite obvious plotting and the most annoying soundtrack this side of Flashdance, Stranger by Night is still worth watching for a bravura performance by veteran video star William Katt in a role that would work perfectly in a big-screen Quentin Tarantino version of Starsky and Hutch. Unfortunately, Katt's wonderfully obnoxious cop is only peripheral to this tale of a tough-guy detective Steven Bauer whose alcoholic blackouts are followed by discoveries of dead hookers and a parade of red herrings. None of these do anything but make you wish Katt were on screen more."
