A decent-looking lad called Dennis Skinner rents an apartment in a couple's house, Kerry and Geoff. At night he roams the streets with a goodie-bag filled with knives looking for victims to skin, constantly followed by the hobbling, wobbling junkie Heidi who was mutilated by him and is now looking for revenge. Dennis is attracted to Kerry and wants to show her the real him.Written by

Ted Raimi researched his role as Dennis Skinner so he could make the distinction between a psychopath and a sociopath. Raimi played Skinner as a psychopath. See more »
Dennis is shown skinning the corpse of a female. After he finishes with her back he turns her over. When he reaches for her head the "dead" actress closes her eyes when his hands get close. Her eyes had been open the entire scene. See more »
The R-rated version sloppily removes most of the gore included in the unrated version. In the process, some of Dennis' speech about his father while skinning the blond prostitute was also trimmed. See more »
Now...I am a HUGE Ted Raimi fan, and I bought this movie under the assumption that this highly underrated actor would be in a starring role and make a worthwhile movie. However, this is not the case. Although this movie had promise, the script needed work (to say the least), the audio track was terrible, and I sense that there was a lot of poor editing done, because it was full of plot holes. The only thing I really learned was that the skin of the bully that the dog ate must have been poisonous, because I can think of NO OTHER REASON why the dog died. Its really a shame, too, since poor Ted has not been offered more leading roles because he is immensely talented. I'm just sorry that his brother's perpetual habit of putting him in the background drove Ted to this during his early career. Tracy Lords mumbled her way through, and I wondered how in the hell a DVD has a video roll in it. I guess I'll just swallow my $9.00 loss (at least the shipping was free), and be glad that there is better Ted Raimi fare out there.
