PINKIE | MANNING, SC | 10/05/2008

Un-viewable Cheap Production
Acute Observer | Jersey Shore USA | 05/14/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The film begins with a view of the Brooklyn Bridge. No view of lower Manhattan. In July 1976 a number of apparently unrelated murders began in New York city and baffled the police. [This film correctly shows old blood as black and clotted.] Next we see the Public Defender telling David Berkowitz what the rules are and to keep his mouth shut. [These flashbacks disrupt the continuity of the story.] "Are you aware that you are a paranoid schizophrenic." Thirteen murders, voices in his head. [Her style of eyeglasses are anachronistic.] Was there a satanic cult or just his fantasy? Did the devil make him do it? "The voices will tell you what to do." "I want to be saved." They will plead "not guilty by reason of insanity".

This story is a low-budget production that does not show the real crimes, the shooting of couples in parked cars at night. This terrorized the residents of Brooklyn and Queens counties. The police worked on this case by looking at all parking tickets issued around the time of the crimes. One ticket was for the car owned by David Berkowitz of the Bronx. And so the case was solved by finding one needle in a haystack. [I remember a TV film circa 1979 that did better in telling the story of this crime.] This seems like a cheap film made by students ("The Blair Witch Project"). The killer wrote letters to a famous newspaper journalist. He also had a regular job, in spite of any alleged insanity. I can't overemphasize the badness of this film. "All characters and events contained in this movie are entirely fictional ...". They didn't credit the dog either!
The producers of this must of been on acid!

"I can't believe this film is even called a film. It's by far the most annoying flick I've ever seen. They must not of had more than [...] in their budget to make this. It's like the ultra low budget porn flicks You would come across on the playboy channel in the 80's, I was waiting for the public defender to take her clothes of and start "doin" the main character and the guards all at once. But thankfully it's not a porn, they only share the same budget. I don't think I'll ever buy a lions gate movie again. If you like CHEASY LOW BUDGET FILMS buy it, but if you want to watch a decent movie about son of sam buy "summer of sam"."
Awful, truly awful.

"I was hoping this movie would be good. The topic is an interesting one. However this movie is a total disappointment. The production is amateurist in the bad sense of the word. The acting is poor, the film quality is second rate, the lighting is bad, the continuity is poor, the dialogue is awful. Even the costumes are mediocre.

Unless one wishes to watch a movie and make fun of it, do not watch this Z grade movie. I was fooled by the cover, which is very rare, please do not make the same mistake."
