Wish it had been a bit sleazier
15 January 2013 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

John Willis (Doc Dougherty) is a renegade cop who doesn't play by the rules (original!). This is established in the opening ten minutes when he blows away the drug dealers who had killed his partner (shockingly, this occurs pre-movie). He soon finds himself dealing with a new kind of scum when a series of unusual murders start occurring on the subway platforms. They are being pulled off by Boris Pinscher (Lennie Loftin), a renegade mental patient who also doesn't play by the rules. This is established in the opening ten minutes when he threatens to kill his roommate before being released. Boris leads a ragtag group of folks who live in the subway system and like to kill folks every now and then. Despite his the police chief (who is black, of course) putting him on suspension, Willis teams with reporter Kim Knowles (B.J. Geordan) to put a stop to these human rats. This is definitely no C.H.U.D., but if you get a hankering for some NYC lensed locations than UNDERGROUND TERROR will fill you up. The acting is pretty rough and the plot is dopey (no joke, the killers learn of the reporter after she leaves her camera with her name on it in their lair), but it wasn't an excruciating 90 minutes at all. I'm just happy to know someone actually named a villain Boris Pinscher.
