In Los Angeles, the rookie Detective Paul McAnn teams up with the veteran Detective Leo Kessler to investigate the murder of Betty Johnson and her boyfriend that were stabbed by a naked serial-killer in a park. Detective Kessler recognizes the victim, who lived in the same neighborhood many years ago and childhood friend of his daughter Laurie Kessler. The killer Warren Stacy goes to the funeral and overhears Betty's father telling Detective Kessler that his daughter had a diary. Warren breaks in Betty's apartment and stabs and kills her roommate Karen Smalley trying to find the diary. But Karen had already delivered the journal to Detective Kessler. Leo Kessler is sure that Warren is the serial-killer and her plants a false evidence in his apartment. However, Warren's defense lawyer presses Detective McAnn accusing him of perjury and Warren is released. Now the Warren is stalking Laurie to revenge against her father. Written by

Warren Stacy picks up the police radio and it says: "Code 6, Florence and Normandie". Nine years later, the largest riot in Los Angeles' history (also known as "The Rodney King Riots") would break out at that very same intersection. See more »
At the end of the film, Warren is distracted by the transmissions on the police radio while searching for Laurie. The radio was given to Laurie by McAnn long before Warren is arrested for murder. Yet she still has it after his trial, when there is no reason for her to keep it following the arrest as it a tool to contact McAnn should Warren make another obscene call to her. Furthermore, no charging device is given with the radio, so the battery would have long been flat. It is highly likely that a property officer at the police station would also have noticed its absence for such an extended period and would have questioned McAnn as to its whereabouts for inventory purposes.

Go ahead, arrest me. Take me in. You can't punish me. I'm sick. You can't punish me for being SICK! All you can do is lock me up. But not forever. One day I'll get out. One day I'll get out. That's the law! That's the law! That's the LAW! And I'll be back! I'll be BACK! And you'll hear from me! You and the WHOLE FUCKING WORLD!
No, we won't.

A very solid movie! Charles Bronson is absolutely great in this film. The fact that the killer was a handsome guy really emphasized that he was a sociopath and all around creep (smart character development). Lisa Eilbacher is damn cute! A good psychological action/thriller!
I do not understand why people consider this a "cheesy?" movie or a "rip-off" of Death Wish.
Leo Kessler is a hardened cop. Paul Kersey was an architect who took on the role of vigilante after a life changing event. The two characters really aren't that similar at all.
I wonder what Lisa Eilbacher is up to nowadays.
