Storyline

Christopher Gill is a psychotic killer who uses various disguises to trick and strangle his victims. Moe Brummel is a single and harassed New York City police detective who starts to get phone calls from the strangler and builds a strange alliance as a result. Kate Palmer is a swinging, hip tour guide who witnesses the strangler leaving her dead neighbor's apartment and sets her sights on the detective. Moe's live-in mother wishes her son would be a successful Jewish doctor like his big brother. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

The morning after the first murder, Steiger checks the newspapers for coverage. The back page of the New York Daily News reveals that the Philadelphia Phillies edged the New York Mets 6 to 5 and that the Kansas City Athletics shut out the New York Yankees 2 to 0. The edition of the paper Steiger is reading is therefore from Thursday, June 29, 1967. See more »

Goofs

Kupperman (played by Michael Dunn, a dwarf) repeatedly refers to himself as a "midget." Dwarfism and the physiological condition leading to foreshortened stature of people typically identified as midgets are two entirely different syndromes; anyone afflicted with one or the other certainly knows the difference.

Steiger gives a bravura performance as a serial killer
17 August 1999 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Coming hot off the heels of his Oscar winning role in 1967's "In the Heat of the Night" Steiger gives an acting tour-de-force in this tale of a demented serial killer tormenting a police officer. Steiger pulls out all the plugs as he slips into the persona of a Catholic priest, German plumber, simpering hair stylist...and all with great flare and comic over tones. Segal and Remick provide the love interest in a rather kooky way, and it all makes for great fun, in a serial killer movie!..Gotta see it!
