A spate of killings of teenagers by a maniac dressed like a hippie causes a detective to check the records for similar killings. He discovers that every five years, in the fifth month of the year, for five consecutive days, the same type of killings have occurred, and the few descriptions of the suspect always match: he's dressed like a hippie. As the detective searches for the killer, he begins to have suspicions about his superior, an older man who is haunted by memories of his military service in Vietnam.Written by
I of course think "555" is a superior very low budget video. As opposed to the review mentioning there is one scene where the blood may appear to be purple. "555" has a story line and a plot as compared to most of the low low budget film/videos made at that time. It was not shot using a hand held cam corder, but shot using 1" video editing was done at CinemaVideo in Chicago, also the Audio is superb you can hear all of it. Also it was reviewed in Variety and got a very favorable review for this type of video, in fact Variety hardly ever reviewed this type of genre, dang, wish I still had a copy of it to post here.
