Non-Offical Release. Rating- PG
28 June 2000 | by (Lake Isabella, CA) – See all my reviews

Austin Stoker stars in this film from the early "rip-off king" writer/director William Girdler. The film has a cimax in which it is about a black man who kills people with a large knife. the film's rating- PG is strange because of it's violence THE ZEBRA KILLER (A.K.A- PANIC CITY) Is impossible to find and is completely unavailable. I have tried looking for it over the yrs and have had no luck on finding it or on the internet. >
