Campus cut-ups
31 May 2008 | by (NYC suburbs) – See all my reviews

In the college town of Woodside, pre-med student Daphne (Vera Miles) narrowly escapes a maniac who has been strangling and mutilating young women near the campus and her boyfriend, a Psychology professor (Jeffrey Hunter), as a few ideas about the killings. He's certain the murders are the work of a faculty member and that the fiend will attack Daphne again; he also knows these kinds of crimes come in waves because blood-lust is catching. The police won't listen to him but he's right on all counts.

John "Hangover Square" Brahm directed the atmospheric yarn from a Barre Lyndon story and makes the most of Universal Studio's spooky back lot forest. Nightmare-inducing images are evoked through dialog; mention is made of the strangler's wicked post-mortem way with a knife. Co-starring Dick "Bewitched" Sargent and Madge "Batman" Kennedy.
