The film was drastically reedited before it's release because of the MPAA's ratings board strict guidelines on graphic violence, language and nudity at that point in time. Which are noticeable due to the film's many jump cuts in handful of scenes specifically most of the attacks on the strippers by the unnamed killer for example. Ultimately it caused Twentieth Century-Fox to sell of the film to an independent distributor for a theatrical release. See more »

Ex-boxer Tom Berenger, now an agent of strippers, tries to track down the maniacal killer that slashes "his" girls with a razor-blade. Problem is, we know who the killer is right from the start, so there's no mystery and no progression of the plot - it's just a series of consecutive murders. The good cast compensates somewhat, and the film holds your interest, but it all seems to be merely an excuse for the final showdown between Berenger and the killer, and even that isn't as good as it could've been.
