October 20, 2010 underwhelming, uninvolving product of its time that simply possesses no relevance in 2010.

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.

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