Joe Spinell why did you have to go??
20 April 2002 | by (stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

A very underrated master piece that i liked much more than, William Lustig´s Maniac, this is far off better not as brutal as the earlier mentioned Maniac, but has a much more interesting plot, the story in short is that Spinell thinks he´s a movie director, but he´s not, he becomes obsessed by the beautiful Caroline Munroe from the Spy who loved me, Spinell wants her in his movie (eventhough he hasn´t got a movie to put her in) I laughed a lot in this very sick study,of the mind of the deranged serial killer, played byJoe Spinell. It has a lot of strong violence, throat cutting stabbings and some strangulation. Watch out for Spinells real mother that plays the killers mother also. I gave it a 10 out of 10
