So far, it looks like only two people have rated this film. One of them gave "Nightstalker" a 5, while the other gave it a 1. I'll give it a 3, splitting the difference.

This film is probably a fail, but it's not as big of a fail as you might think. During the opening credits I cringed, and thought to myself, "Oh, man. Why did I waste a few bucks on this garbage?" Luckily, I gave it a little more time. But I think the biggest problem with this film: they tried to get a little too artistic with it all, making it come across at times as a bad 80s MTV video. Most films try to come from one person's viewpoint, but this film comes from two: Richard Ramirez, one of the most sadistic serial killers of all time; and Roselyn Sanchez, who plays a homicide detective and actually gives a really strong performance here. Probably stronger than the film ultimately deserved. But how do you show a film from two viewpoints?

Well, when the film is coming from Mr. Ramirez's viewpoint, he's usually accompanied by the Devil. (I kid you not). And at the same time, the camera shakes and so does his head; after all, he's on drugs and that must be what it's like to be really, really high. But when the film comes from Ms. Sanchez's viewpoint, well, the camera doesn't shake and she's the main character in the scene. Oh, and the Devil doesn't seem to be around.

I'll admit that I'm not an expert on the true Nightstalker case, and I'm not an expert on Mr. Ramirez. I did watch a YouTube interview with him, and he tried to be deceptive when asked if he's a Satanist. He hedged on, "Are you evil?" but he finally answered something like, "Yes, I'm evil, but not 100 percent." And he added something along the lines of, "But everyone is evil." I may not agree with Mr.

This was a pretty bad rendition of a horrific story. I didn’t care for the erratic camera jumbling when the killer was committing his crimes. I think I understand why the director did this but it just didn’t flow very well and I found it very disruptive. I am very familiar with this story and while obviously you can’t tell this huge of a story in a 90 minute movie without having to omit some things. Major details were changed and things were just left out. I just felt like this was thrown together. I have read books on this, read many articles and seen other movies and the director/writer didn’t even seem to try to care to make this true to the story. Let’s not even talk about the ending. I don’t want to spoil it but I will just say the way Richard Ramirez was caught at the end of this film was not how it really happened so I really don’t know why they chose to show it this way. I just feel this was a very poor representation of what really went down, it wasn’t told very well and was frankly put together very sloppily.

This movie is based on a True Story<<--i used capitol letters, wow. However, it is not from the real world that i know of and really is a "slasher" with three conflicting tones or more like formulas, maybe even four: the brutal realism of a docudrama, the "slasher" horror flick, feminist pic a la "silence of the lambs" and then fourth, even a thriller. All have loose ends.

Roselyn Sanchez and Frank Luis both competently play partners in the LAPD who arrive at the first murder scene where a victims eyeball was taken out found by Sanchez in the fridge. Then their dialogue suspiciously seemed a bit too light to the whole situation--Luis decides to one-up a homicide detective in his own way as they leave the scene and they seem to want to just get some donuts afterwards. Then they arrive at more crimes and even Sanchez religious mother seems to have been saved by her godly aura from the killer as he breaks in her house. Meanwhile, in between barfing at crime scenes, Sanchez at first seems to have a knack for catching homicidal killers. Then, of course having little to no reaction AGAIN as she did at first crime scene, she does nothing at numerous inappropriately sexist advances during her new "promotion" to homicide. She does nothing apparently because she may get fired.

Surprisingly, all these things i pointed out are the only good things in this movie and would have worked if it werent for this director trying to add in all these other tones. All these things would be okay if this were a docudrama. We learn nothing about Richard Ramirez except that he hides his face with his long hair and needs streetwise prostitutes for company before saying never mind and killing and raping them and everyone else that seems more helpless.

This movie makes Paul W. S. Anderson and Uwe Boll look talented, and their flicks appear enjoyable. Unbelievably, Fisher's "Nightstalker" manages to be, simultaneously, campy and filthy, annoying and dull, unnerving and boring, ridiculous and repulsive. There is really nothing good about it, apart from perhaps the cover and Bret Roberts - the actor who portrays Ramirez (and even he looks - expectedly - embarrassed when the hack "director", Fisher, has him fondle a flour-covered "vampire" weirdo, whom Fisher, with his apparent 12-year-old mentality, intended to be a "symbolic" representation of what Ramirez sees in his "possessed" mind during the crime spree).
The "story" is sub-imbecilic and is not in fact even loosely based on the actual events. Fisher's "writing" skills are almost as high as those of a drug-induced 13 year old "nu-metalhead", fresh after drinking a sixpack of beer and viewing "House of 1000 Corpses" with his Limp Korn Zombie tape playing right into his ears. In fact, said metalhead would probably write and direct a better movie than Fisher's one (well, it certainly could not be any worse!) - at least in *his* film, there would be no unnerving stroboscopic Pokemon "techniques", which Fisher loves so much.
As far as the director's "factual" treatment and "research" go, this flick's script was apparently based on Fisher's experience of trying to read a short, misspelled summary of an article reviewing a book with a chapter whose part described a documentary about comic books depicting serial killers, who happened to include Ramirez.
