When five bodies turn up in the waters of Burman City, its illusion of safety is shattered, and Mayer Hackett will stop at nothing to see the peace returned.

Dennis Hopper at his best.

Great movie, not for the squeamish.

A serial child killer is on the loose, and the embarrassed mayor, with some important city contracts on her agenda, makes a deal with the corrupt chief of police to hire a lead enforcer in the Irish mob to find and whack the killer, to hush the affair up quickly and to avoid the publicity of a trial. Thus, the chief of police is actually working against his own detectives and even leaks official leads back to the mob, a factor leading to the murders of potential witnesses. The head of the mob, named Johnny Gault (professionally played by Tom McCamus), has a nasty habit of shooting people on the slightest provacation anyway, and one supposes that the disposing of bodies in this town is an easy task anyway. So it's the mob versus the cops as both groups attempt to discover the murderer's identity first. Oh, did I forget to mention that the child serial killer -- remember him? -- has murdered five children on his first day alone? This fact might make world news let alone give the locals something to ponder. It might even create a bit more publicity than the mayor would like, if she wishes to hush up her little problem
