This film was about a psycho, a psycho in Miami! No, just kidding, of course it is in San Francisco. A very cheaply made movie that features two 'stars' of note, Joe Estevez whose main claim to fame is that he looks a lot like his more famous brother Martin Sheen and Todd Bridges from the sitcom Different Strokes! So no real star power and some kills and the most disinterested news anchor ever!
The story, a killer is on the loose! No, not Brandon Flowers, though I am sure he is out there too, but most likely he does not strangle and stab people! This one does as he kills and sends not so cryptic letters to the disinterested news anchor. Joe Estevez is an investigator and a bad one at that. Never before has the killer had so easy a time committing murders and committing multiple home invasions despite all Joe's efforts, like putting one cop in a car at the front of the house. Not like there are multiple entrances to houses and even alleyways ya know? Joe gets a priest to help and soon he figures out that he has to stop the killer from using an insanity plea! Though I am sure more than a few dead people would have rather he worked on actually capturing the killer than worrying about the trial...
As I said, Joe Estevez and Todd Bridges are the only stars of note, though it would not surprise me if the killer in this one wrestled or something. Looks like he'd be a good heel. The newscaster is totally out acted by Joe and Todd and that is not a good thing. Then there is Barry, Joe's partner and the priest...I swear that they look like they are all related or something, possibly brothers!
So, this thing was bad; however, it held me interest a bit as I kept wondering how the cops who were doing everything wrong were going to catch the killer. Then the ending comes and he gets away while the police think someone else did it. Surprised me, but it probably should not have because the police were worried about that impending trial, seemingly forgetting that they had to capture the killer first. Heck, if they actually put more than one officer at the house to protect the woman, they may of shot and killed the psycho and there would not have even been a trial!
