This was a very interesting film.It's about a psycho director shooting a murder movie where the people actually get killed! The people are killed in famous Hollywood death scenes such as the shower scene from Psycho and the chainsaw scene from Scarface. Grisly. Kathleen Kinmont was awesome in this! It also stars Sarah Douglas from Puppet Master 3. See Psycho and Scarface before you see it. If you liked it see C.i.a. :codename Alexa, which also stars Kathleen Kinmont.

This is one of the best of Wings Hauser's films. A Wings Hauser cop flick is basically workmanlike. Everything is done competently, but there are no surprises. Every cliche will be there: the tough but feeling cop, the superior who hates him because he goes over the line, twisted sociopathic criminals whom the law is too soft on, young kids whom the tough but feeling cop has to save from the sex industry, while giving us a couple of really nice shots of naked girls (esp. T.C. Warner), the final showdown between the cop and the killer who has kidnapped the hero's daughter / mother / girlfriend ... it's all here. It's like Charles Bronson, but a one star lower ratiing, because it's without top production values, without the girls who are 10s who would be in a Bronson film, with few (if any) clever lines, and with Hauser who is gruff and watchable, but not exciting like Bronson.

What helps lift this baby to the top of the Hauser line is Michael J. Pollard who does a nice turn as police psychiatrist, both funny and serious. Also the young women are pretty if not stunning.

Finally, Kathleen Kinmont does look stunning in her kidnap scene - she wears a biker jacket with only black panties on below, and we get three very nice rear views as she tries to climb away over a hill to escape.

Not great stuff, but fun and watchable.

This review is for the Amazon VOD rental of this film. I have always found Wings
Hauser films to be very much a guilty pleasure. This is no exception. Hauser not
only stars but also directs this gritty action flick. Hauser plays a cop tracking
down a serial killer who films his murders as scenes from great movies. Hauser is
always good as a tough guy cop. This film also features Kathleen Kinmont. She is
such a beautiful woman. This film is well worth the VOD rental price.

This is an absolutely terrible movie with no redeeming features. The directing is inept, the acting is inept, and the screenplay would be laughable if it weren't so repellent.
