Sergeant J.J. Striker (Charles Napier) is a hard-drinking cop who tracks down a serial killer that can seemingly repel bullets in this routine crime drama made in 1985. Sommers (Robert Zdar) kills prostitutes and paints Chinese symbols on his victims. Rene (Michelle Reese) is the hooker who teems up with Striker in an attempt to nab the killer. Gary Crosby plays an unpopular cop caught with a transvestite prostitute, with a bevy of beauties led by Tally Chanel and Ola Ray who play the ill-fated victims. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
I wanted "The Night Stalker" with Kolchak (Darren McGavin) but received this in the mail instead. I was all excited to watch the original since I remembered that I wasn't able to sleep for a week when I saw it as a kid since it was so scarey...I popped this in and was extremely disappointed. Acting was bad, the killer was annoying with his constant rambling ("hah, hah lillian")...what??!!! And the supposed hero was a washed-up, sexist alky! Don't waste your time...get the one with Darren McGavin instead.
