Driven to the edge of insanity by the execution of his older brother, Chet is boiling over with hatred. After getting his face slashed in a senseless alley-way brawl, his paranoia begins to paint everyone around him as an enemy. He turns to his sweet younger sister, his slutty girlfriend, and even his old poker buddies for solace, but all of them have real or imagined links back to the ill-fated trial that condemned his brother, thus aggravating Chet's psychosis. After viciously assaulting the prosecuting attorney's son, the troubled youth draws the relentless attention of detective Lt. Mac. Spiraling out of control, Chet commits an arson and then a senseless murder. With Lt. Mac ratcheting up the pressure, Chet sinks deeper and deeper into the bottomless pit of his own psychotic delusions. Written by
This here movie is one of those old drive in type movies which actually its a fair film. The cast is different though and the movie maybe slow at times but this movie does have its moments. Some of the scenes in My opinion was ahead of its time and similar ones wasn't seen until films made later on down the road. The film has solid acting and interactions between the characters. Anatomy of a Psycho is written by the late Don Devlin who is the father of epic movie writer Dean Devlin. The late writer also has a part in this film. I wouldn't consider this film a horror film but more like a crime or a thriller. Sometimes movies like this one are some of the most realistic ones. This is part of a double feature which the other on the tape is called Hatchet for the Honeymoon which is also a good oldie! The movie is not perfect but like I said it has its moments. Give this movie a chance if you old crime flicks!
