Storyline

William Dorn decides to get back at all the people he blames for the overdose death of his daughter and the break up of his marriage, so he decides to go on a bombing spree. His first target is his daughter's old high school, which he all but destroys. His next target is the mental hospital where his daughter was when she died and his final target is the feminist organization his ex-wife was a member of. However, during his attack on the hospital there are two people who witness this action, a creepy rapist named George Fromley and his victim, a young mute girl. When police detective Geronimo Minelli is assigned to the case he must find Fromley not only to keep him from striking again, but to keep him alive before the Dorn makes him his next victim.

Violent film, suprised it got a "R" rating.
21 October 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Released in most cities by Jerry Gross company Cinemation as POLICE CONNECTION in 1973, this violent action film centers a man (Chuck Connors) who's daughter overdosed on drugs. So he plants bombs on places that did him wrong and the only person who witness him is a psycho rapist/killer (Brand).

Vince Edwards play a mean cop who is on the trail of the bomber and the rapist. This film is on over 10 different video labels under the original title THE MAD BOMBER, but all of them are TV print. You are missing out on a gruesome human explosition, rape scene, nudity, and even Brand doing the nasty by himself!!! Very sick film, suprised Bert I. Gordon who made lots of classic Sci-fi made this.
