Above Average 70's actioner.
1 August 1999 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

Viharo, an ex-late 60's early 70's leading man enters the low budget action genre in this actioner directed and made by the people who made ILSA films. Viharo plays a bounty hunter who is on a trail of a rich psychopath who wears a mask killing girls in Los Angeles. 70's low-budget black action star John Daniels has a small part to bring in the black audience in an all white movie. The excellent soundtrack was later re-used in 1977 Tom Sellick film THE WASHINGTON AFFAIR.
