A GOOD HORROR FLICK!!
10 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

A good horror flick, not to much to dislike about this movie, some good performances, and an interesting killer. (shouldn't see the killer's face at the end, much more mysterious without seeing it) The story is Innocent people are being killed on the streets by a maniac dressed up as a cop who seems to have insider information to the police business. This monster of a man has to be stopped. All up a good watch, isn't the best movie but that's what makes it so good.
