Someone is killing high-priced hookers with a
crossbow, leaving an obscure South American symbol written in blood
on the wall near them. We know the killer is a big deal investment
banker who no longer gets enough thrill from power and money. The
detective assigned to the case, Robert Forster, is not let in on the
secret for most of the film. He and his new partner are trying to
solve the crimes before his ex-wife (Shanna Reed), a news reporter,
irritates the killer and becomes the next victim.
The writer of the film is quick to point out in comments at IMDb
that the film has something of a cult following. I can see why. It was
a quick, painless watch for me. Given a low budget, it's not a bad
little unrated police procedural. The actors (including Bobby from
Taxi and the original Shaft) are competent, there is some humor, the
villain is pure evil, there is excellent nudity from Teri Weigel, and
the story moves along well.
