The first gay slasher?
18 May 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A serial killer stalks homosexuals leaving his victims with an 'M' carved on their skin.Late-night radio host Dave Miller is asked by the police to challenge the maniac by provoking him to call his show."City in Panic" is a mildly interesting slasher obviously inspired by "Psycho" and Fritz Lang's "M".The killings are pretty bloody and mean-spirited for example a security guard is castrated and then stabbed to death in a toilet."City in Panic" reminded me a little bit "Perfect Victims" about AIDS-infected rapist.The gay community is not shown in a positive light.If you are 80's slasher completist check this obscure film out.7 out of 10.
