Classic Joe Spinell flick directed by William Lustig. Joe is a crazed serial killer, prowling the streets of New York, scalping hookers in honor of his prostitute mom...Supercharged music score by Jay Chattaway, great acting and script research on serial killers by Spinell, and nice direction by Lustig. I really enjoyed this film! The subway stalking scene is most suspenseful!Known for it's great splatter effects by Tom Savini (who publicly disowned the film then later joined Lustig for laser disc commentary!), it delivers on the gore score. Scalpings, beheadings, stabbings, and the classic gunshot to the head scene highlight this film!They surely don't make em like this anymore and probably never will again, so you be sure to check this mad pup out. You'll be shaking in your jockstraps, folks!
