A 1980 New York slasher thriller that, according to the Psychotronic Encyclopedia, managed to offend even many gore fans. Leonard Maltin’s Movie & Video Guide finds it claustrophobic, sickening. William Lustig directed a story written by executive producer Joe Spinell, who also plays the title role. Not to be confused with features of the same title by Dwain Esper (1934), Michael Carreras (1962), and Richard Compton (1978).
