At one point, Warren Stacy (Gene Davis) picks up a police radio, and it reads: "Code 6, Florence and Normandie". Nine years later, the largest riot in Los Angeles' history, also known as "The Rodney King Riots", would break out at that very same inter-section. See more »
Instead of simply losing his job, Kessler would have been immediately arrested and charged for planting evidence. See more »
Death was caused by the severing of the intestines and major arteries causing massive hemorrhaging.
This is all alright but can you tell us something that we can use?
The Johnson girl's blood type is the least common: AB-. In addition, there's evidence of a hepatitis infection, now dormant.
Was this girl raped, doc?
There's no evidence of forcible entry.
I could have told you that, ya know.
On the basis of what?
If anybody does something like this, his knife has gotta be his penis.

Warren's killings are done with him nude. In television broadcasts these scenes have Warren with flesh-colored briefs. Later scenes in the movie have inconsistencies in the color of briefs he wears. The wearing of any clothing is inconsistent with his alibis throughout the movie, as well. See more »
A very solid movie! Charles Bronson is absolutely great in this film. The fact that the killer was a handsome guy really emphasized that he was a sociopath and all around creep (smart character development). Lisa Eilbacher is damn cute! A good psychological action/thriller!
I do not understand why people consider this a "cheesy?" movie or a "rip-off" of Death Wish.
Leo Kessler is a hardened cop. Paul Kersey was an architect who took on the role of vigilante after a life changing event. The two characters really aren't that similar at all.
I wonder what Lisa Eilbacher is up to nowadays.
