Boring, low budget serial killer horror.
6 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Murderlust (1985) is a very low budget film about a Sunday school teacher who seems like a popular guy with his fellow teachers, but in his spare time he likes to pick up young women (mainly hookers) and kill them (mostly by strangling).

Like i say the film was very low budget but also pretty boring, all of the killings were off-screen and there was hardly any blood at all, and no gore whatsoever, the acting was also pretty lame to be honest, and the storyline was pretty flat and routine.

All in all a very rare horror film to find, but thats because it's just not very good at all, stick with Henry: Portrait of a serial killer, it's far superior in every way to this poor effort!!! 3/10
