Did You Know?

Trivia

During pre-production, according to the May 6, 1981, edition of "Variety", screenwriter Larry Cohen--who was then the film's director--conducted three weeks of rehearsals and scouted and selected locations. This was prior to his being replaced as director after a week into principal photography. See more »

Goofs

When Hammer is attempting to enter the compound, the guards refer to explosives rigged at the fence and along the driveway as "daisy cutters", which are 15000lb general-purpose bombs; they probably intended to say "claymores". See more »

Quotes

Mike Hammer: [hearing screams] What was that?
Dr. Charlotte Bennett: Haven't you heard an orgasm before?
Mike Hammer: Orgasm my ass!

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC and the 1986 video was cut further (totalling 4 minutes in total) with edits to a scene of Kendricks tracing a knife across a woman's body, and heavy cuts to a scene at an orgy where he terrorizes and tortures 2 female twins with a razor. See more »

A Must for Barbara Carrera Fans
25 May 1999 | by Antilles-7See all my reviews

This so-so detective yarn feels more like a TV movie than the noir-ish piece of cinema you might expect from a Spillane novel. But it has a few moments.

What makes this movie worth watching is the smoking Nicaraguan beauty Barbara Carrera. She has a fully-nude love scene that steals the show. If you're a Barbara Carrera fan, you should rent this movie and fast-forward to that scene (a little over 1 hour into the movie). You won't be disappointed.
