This movie has not received much attention through the years all the way back to its initial release.During that time period it was second on a double bill featuring "the brides of Fu Manchu".Recently viewed Homicidal for the the third time with many years between each viewing.Each time I found the movie entertaining and have to admit the story becomes clearer each time.Although I've done a lot of ad libbing during movies this is one tense and serious not deserving of it.For that reason I'm not in agreement with those calling this movie corny or having unintentional amusing parts.The main character is a tortured abused soul striking out in rage.The overall plot is believable and would fit right in to the current evening newscasts.Comments have been made how this movie does not compare well to the film Psycho.When Psycho was first released I saw it in the movie theater,after viewing it some persons were saying "too much #*#% publicity!". Someone seeing Homicidal for the first time is not likely to be saying that. The film has extra interest for me because some of the filming is done in the town of Solvang,Calif. which I've visited at least half a dozen times.The scenes outside the drug store and flower shop are recognizable,last I knew that spot had not changed.For those not aware,Solvang is known as the Danish capitol of America.The filmmakers may of thought that was a good tie-in to some of the characters spending time in Denmark.A good movie I think I'm ready to watch it a fourth time
