Storyline

When the doorman of an expensive apartment building turns up with a broken neck, it doesn't attract much attention. But when it happens a second time, and then a third, the city starts to get nervous. The trail of murder and mystery leads from the posh lobbies of Park Avenue to the back alleys in the "Wrong" part of town. Terry Reilly would rather not get involved. He has his novel to finish, and he has the late shift as the doorman at the Biltmore to keep him busy. But when the murderer picks his building as the next target, Terry finds out that he'll have to solve the mystery to save his own neck. Written by TravisBond-aka-HAVOK2000

Since IMDb has no plot summary, here's a short overview without giving away spoilers:

The story is about a mysterious killer rampaging on the necks of some doormen. 30-something Terry Reilly starts a private investigation, fearing he could be the next prey. He finds help in the person of the 30-something Linda Regan, a niece of one of the victims.

I received the film as a trash present, so I suppose it was meant to be bad-taste. It certainly has its moments when you just laugh out loud, especially the killing scenes.

Story is mediocre with minor illogical moments, but not plain bad. Music gets cheesy from times to times, but it also is bearable and can partly be blamed on the general 80's misconception of what is to be done with a synthesizer.

To summarize, there are action movies having popcorn quality - and then there are trash films that have popcorn quality. Doorman belongs to the second group.
