This is a freaky, deranged, and startling character study. A stalker is roaming the streets, using chloroform to knock out women, and then groping their naked bodies. He doesn't rape them, just cops a feel and takes some pictures.
This low budget film drags you into a world of unconscionable atrocities. There is a constant, uncomfortable tension as this lunatic does his deeds. You soon realize he is suffering from severe depression, loneliness, guilt, shame, alcoholism--still you can't come close to pitying the guy. He is not totally evil, more just mentally unstable. His past eventually becomes evident as you realize where his problems began.
I loved the confrontation with his ex-wife. She emphatically screams "What do you think you can come back here, knock me out, and then f__k me?". Aww, no such luck.
The camera work looks like a home video job, which definitely adds to the realism and rugged feel for the heinous crimes. The dark sound effects initially seem very creepy but do start to get a little repetitive. The acting throughout this movie is adequate but nothing special.
This is a slightly disturbing venture but if you're looking for something significantly more evil in the same vein, checkout Scrapbook.
