Storyline

The San Francisco area is beset by a series of seemingly random murders without motive or pattern. The police are taunted by phone calls and letters. Could the maniac be the violent, truck driver, or the seemingly mild-mannered mailman, or even a cop? Written by Charles Goodwin <CharlesGoodwin@juno.com>

sleaze-driven non-account of famed serial killer
30 June 2007 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

A shoddy Poverty Row production made to cash in on the real-life serial killer who called himself Zodiac and paralyzed the San Francisco Bay Area with fear for years.

In this illusory concoction, the killer's identity is no mystery, as we are introduced formally to him as a seemingly mild-mannered mail carrier who loves his pet guinea pigs and occasionally worships at a Satanic altar in his apartment.

Despite some intermittent chuckles of the so-bad-it's-funny variety, this film actually delivers at moments, and presents some shocking and surprisingly violent murder scenarios...this might actually be worth a look to a few patient crime/thriller enthusiasts, but don't expect a fact-based story.

4.5/10
