One of the best low budget films I have ever seen. Film within a film revolves around Karloff as the aging horror film star and Peter Bogdanovich as the young director who must convince him to be in his next movie -- or there may be no movie. Add one psychotic sniper and it's all good fun and really pretty scary (thinking about it now, it seems pretty topical, sadly). The sniper never really offers an explanation or speechifies -- it's way more naturalistic and scary that way. A first rate thriller..... 10 out of 10. Should please Karloff fans and those just looking for a good thrill ride.
