It's a surefire memorable horror film with a horrifying glimpse into the mind of a merciless killer.

Seen today, the movie has more in common with the grungy Times Square aesthetic of Abel Ferrara than with the multitudes of slasher flicks that followed it.

This old chestnut from 1980 is worth revisiting for fans of the nouveau 'old skool' horror films of today.
