Editorial Reviews

Psychopaths on the loose.in a city without lights.no one is safe! Life is tough enough in the Big Apple. But when a city-wide power failure causes a blackout, the mad dogs come out to play. A pack of unhinged killers (lead by Robert Carradine of The Long Riders) will stop at nothing to rape, stab and shoot as they prowl from apartment to apartment in New York's most exclusive high rise. Only one cop (James Mitchum of In Harm's Way, Thunder Road) has what it takes to bring them down.

With a promising exploitation (1978) R rating for sadistic bloody violence, I thought I would enjoy this New York Blackout flick but oh was I wrong.

I found this movie quite uninteresting, it reminds me of my "not worth watching" younger days. The movie seemed to me to focus more on what goes on in the residential apartment building rather than the New York blackout itself.

This film was set predominantly in an apartment building and this alone should have made a claustrophobic environment, creating great tension among the excessively cruel, psychopathic characters. Instead, the feeling was flattened by the fact that there were no entertaining or enjoyable performances (Belinda Montgomery, Ray Milland and June Allyson only have insignificant parts). I never felt the unnerving claustrophobia of being stuck in an elevator or apartment building that I expected.

The story line was ineffectual and progressively slow and never builds, nor unfolds to a riveting climax. The actors were not well developed and the story seemed unrealistic. James Mitchum did nothing for this motion picture nor for any of the other motion pictures he appeared in.

Despite the director's mediocre efforts, there just didn't seem to be enough story for a feature length film here. So, I was slightly prepared for an inferior Blackout movie that would either have a terribly obvious sad ending, or a blatantly false happy ending. However, to constantly see this tragic 'Blackout' situation played out in film after film is almost over kill and has become somewhat of an urban 'Blackout' film cliche.

Blackout is simply an uninteresting exploitation film. Go read a good book instead.

I purchased this movie because I thought I had seen it before when I was a kid and I'm also a fan of June Allyson. Turned out it wasn't the same movie I thought it was and June Allyson probably isn't in it a whole five minutes. It's about some guys that break into an apartment building during a blackout and begin terrorizing and killing the residents. Though it's not as graphic as some of the movies of today, it's graphic enough and leaves you with a rather unsettled feeling. Not one I would watch again.
