Grim thriller...underrated.
13 October 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

A surprisingly potent and strangely disregarded psycho-stalker picture marked by taut direction and capable performances, it is also benefited by its lovely San Francisco location filming. The story is uncomplicated, if somewhat derivative...girl aborts the child of her estranged lover, remarries, and becomes pregnant again. The first lover, now quite clearly a dangerously unbalanced nutcase, shows up to settle the score.

A briskly paced little nail-biter which occasionally goes a wee bit over-the-top, DADDY'S GONE A-HUNTING is ripe for a much-deserved reinvestigation.
