A lunatic runs around an apartment complex, apparently home only to attractive flight attendants with a tendency towards exhibitionism. While there, the lunatic tries to kill all the tenants with the contents of a toolbox. Based (probably quite loosely) on a true story.Written by

The original UK cinema version was cut by around 6 minutes by the BBFC to remove a bathtub masturbation sequence and to heavily edit the murder scenes and shots of bloody bodies, and the film later ended up on the DPP 72 list of banned video nasties. In 2000 the film was finally released in the UK and was cut by 1 min 46 secs, with edits being made to a scene of a naked girl being chased and killed with a nail gun. See more »
I really was excited about seeing this when I finally got a hold of it. I had heard some good things about this. Who knew how bad this could be...
The beginning of the movie for--I don't know how long, has a guy killing four women. The scenes are weak and slow and suspenseless and literally terrible. Then this guy kidnaps some girl (who isn't the worst actress ever, but at points she acted like a mannican) and her mother and brother go on the search for her, with the help of a detective and the girl's boyfriend. (Who actually turns out to be...well...you'll see. The killer also has a "surprise" identity, I think, that was delivered horribly.)
Basically, this movie is terrible. It really is. The only semi-redeemable part was the last minute, I'd say, which was okay. Sort of twisted. This whole film really stinks. It's way too chatty, and any scene that could be made tense is just flubbed up. And on the Blockbuster box that this movie came in, it said on the back, "Stephen King has said this is 'One of the ten best horror movies on video.' I don't know what he was on when he made that comment. But then again, he had movies such as Graveyard Shift out that were just as bad.
Anyhoo, pass on this. It really is no good.
