A Serial Killer in Louisville, Kentucky
17 July 2017 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

A serial killer is loose in Louisville and even though he leaves notes behind each killing the police can't seem to make any sense of them as they are too brief and cryptic. Not only that, but each victim is killed by a different weapon and in a different manner so his motives are hard to figure out as well. Needless to say, the lead detective on the case "Lieutenant Frank Savage" (Austin Stoker) is under a great deal of pressure to find this maniac before he can kill again. And the pressure on him intensifies even more when the maniac kidnaps "Frank's Lady" (played by Valerie Rogers). To add even more fuel to the fire, all of this plays out in an area of the country where racial tensions run deep and the fact that Frank is black doesn't help matters in the least. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a fairly decent "Blaxploitation film" produced during a time when they were all the rage. Although times have changed and this movie is quite dated, it still manages to entertain to a certain degree and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
