Commercial photographer Adrian Wilde (Michael Callan) drives a Porche, lives in a mobile home, and has crazy dreams about killing people, usually his models while on a photo shoot. He is seeing a psychiatrist, and telling him what is happening, but isn't making much progress. News reports about additional victims continue, but suffering from memory lapses, Adrian can't remember if he was involved.
Adrian gets some support from his ex-stunt driver brother B.J. (James Stacey), who is handicapped by only having one leg, and his new girlfriend Mindy Jordache (Joanna Pettet), who wants to believe in him. Police detectives Fontain (Pamela Hensley) and Buckhold (David Young) are assigned to catch the killer, and after a decoy is murdered with an ice pick, the Chief (Cleavon Little) intensifies the investigation. Because of his association with the dead models, suspicion eventually points to Adrian Wilde.
There are some mean kills, a particularly long and nasty one involves a model being bitten by a poisonous snake, as a dispassionate Wilde snaps photos of the girl screaming and thrashing in agony. Sally Kirland appears in a cameo as a back alley hooker, who displays her wares before having her neck brutally snapped. Comedian Joey Foreman also appears briefly, before making a bloody exit. If you blink you'll miss her, but SNL's Victoria Jackson appears as a racetrack model.Read more ›
There are two cops tracking the killer (Pamela Hensley, David Young) who work for the proverbial angry black chief (Cleavon Little). The cast includes minor roles by Misty Rowe and Victoria Jackson before she discovered Big Macs. The film overall is poorly scripted and acted. The hair styles and automobiles did bring back some memories.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Joanna Pettet from Casino Royale, Sally Kirkland of General Hospital, Jeana Keough a ZZ Top Video girl, Debbie Zipp)
down; this way and that. The fault is most likely on the script. The production has the feel of a made for tv movie except when delving into the the sleazy sheen with the back alleys, prostitutes, and mud wrestling scene. Not bloody for a "psycho-killer" film,
, just boring. The relationship between the two brothers has a few nice scenes and Joanna Petit is fine as usual (but deserves better). Cleavon Little has a throwaway
role as police sergeant, (he too deserves better). If you must see this, pick it up in one of those 50 movie packs from Mill Creek.
