Customer Reviews

The cast was great in this film.

Really, I think you could pin-point where this film goes exactly and that is what makes it a fairly bad film but the ride is fun.

Andrew Stevens plays Bronson's partner and love interest for Bronson's daughter.

10 TO MIDNIGHT

(USA - 1983)

Aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Theatrical soundtrack: Mono

A world-weary LA cop (Charles Bronson) plants evidence on a young man (Gene Davis) suspected of the serial homicide of several beautiful women, but the plan backfires and Davis subsequently targets Bronson's grown-up daughter (Lisa Eilbacher)...

One of a series of gritty urban thrillers inspired by the success of DEATH WISH, J. Lee Thompson's 10 TO MIDNIGHT was produced by the Cannon studios in 1983 and is fairly typical of the company's commercial output. Though he'd worked in a variety of genres since the early 1950's, Charles Bronson became synonymous with the kind of tough-but-sympathetic vigilante character he plays here, this time seeking a handsome young psychopath who strips naked before murdering his (primarily female) victims. Indeed, Gene Davis' extensive nude scenes provide the film's only significant trump card, leading to a number of curious plot developments (because he was naked when he committed his crimes, Davis knows that Bronson must have planted blood on his clothes, but he can't admit to it without... well, you get the picture), though cinematographer Adam Greenberg (GHOST, RUSH HOUR, the 'Terminator' series) turns visual cartwheels in an effort to avoid full frontal nudity (and a potential X rating).

Of all the career ending movies Charles Bronson made for Cannon films in the mid-to-late eighties, 10 to Midnight is the best. He plays a cop trying too hard to catch a smart, handsome, and devilishly twisted psycho killer (Gene Davis). When the game of cat and mouse eventually snags the cop's daughter (Lisa Eilbacher), he takes a desperate gamble to catch the crafty murderer. Director J. Lee Thompson masterfully blends the Dirty Harry Rogue Cop thriller with some slasher film moments of brutal terror that will have viewers squirming in their seats. A real nail biter, highly recommended.

Charles Bronson vigilante film has the familiar premise that sometimes deadly force is needed to protect society from a madman. This film features a (typically) magnificent performance from a young Lisa Eilbacher (as Bronson's daughter, a student nurse, whose apartment ends up victims of the killer). Well worth a look...better than most in the genre...perhaps the only true sequel, besides Magnum Force, to Dirty Harry...

What do you do when you have a naked psychopath running around in the buff killing girls that turned him down? Well, if you're Bronson, you get Bronson on his behind! Coz Chuck isn't a nice person, he's a "mean, selfish S.O.B." You may want a story, but Chuck wants a killer, and what he wants comes first! He hates quiche, and coleslaw makes him sick! Well, after unsuccessfully trying to put this creep in the slammer by bending the rules a tad, Bronson's thrown off the force. Well, we all know that never stopped him before, so he continues to go after the killer(a wonderfully pathetic, yet creepy performance by Gene Davis). But guess what! The killer goes after Bronson's daughter(naturally), and it becomes personal. Well, I won't give it all away(not that I need to, this is a Bronson movie here), but I'd recommend this one. It's harmless cheap thrills-a little bit of tough guy action and a little bit of slasher flick. What more could you want? Perfect late night viewing.

Ten to Midnight is one of those movies I pop in the dvd player at least once a year.
I love revenge movies and I love Bronson, and uber handsome Andrew Stevens who plays his sidekick. Gene Davis" plays a sexually repressed psychopath whom of course has "mother issues" he kills women while he is nude,so killing while naked was fashionable way before Christian Bale's "Patrick Bateman" did it.This film has elements of the Richard Speck story "Chicago Massacre" but still stays original.

You could call it a slasher because the killer does slash his victims and there are some good kill scenes, but it's basically a psychological thriller..
The story is good and the action is nonstop.Bronson is on top of his game in this movie especially since the character that plays his daughter "Lisa Eilbacher" lives in the student nurse dorm that is being terrorized by the naked killer. It also has a good kill scene with "Ola Ray" the girl from the Michael Jackson Thriller Video.

Police detective Leo Kessler (Charles Bronson) can't seem to get any evidence on a suspected serial killer (Gene Davis). This guy is sleazy, kinky, and smart - he murders in the nude and creates airtight alibis. He starts to taunt Bronson and stalk his daughter (Lisa Eilbacher). Bronson's frustration with the situation leads him to plant evidence on the killer to get him off the streets, but this move backfires. Intriguing Bronson vehicle made all the more interesting by Gene Davis' performance as the psycho. He's good-looking, well-built, but his obvious rage against women (which really isn't explained) keeps him from having a normal relationship with one.
