A LAPD detective is on the trail of a very handsome young man who had been seducing and slashing many young women to death.
This movie's original script title was "Bloody Sunday". Producer Pancho Kohner has said that he and Cannon Group chairman Menahem Golan gave this movie its "10 To Midnight" title despite it having no apparent relevance to the film's story, after Kohner successfully pitched the title, Bronson in the lead, and a description of "great action and great danger and great revenge" to buyers without a script, then "scrambled to find a story" and settled on the already-written "Bloody Sunday" screenplay. Later, marketing for the movie did suggest a connection with the title: the theatrical release movie poster presented artwork with the villain character's arms forming the 11:50 pm time (10 to Midnight) on a clock-face whilst the movie's DVD tagline read: "A cop. A killer. A deadline".
My father's gonna kill you!
Warren Stacy: Oh, no, he's not. I know where he's at.
Laurie Kessler: That was him on the phone just now. He'll be here any second!
Warren Stacy: Oh, yeah? Then I guess I better hurry up!
When Warren is chasing Betty through the woods, he's wearing pants while running in some shots.
Warren's killings are done with him nude. In television broadcasts these scenes have Warren with flesh-colored briefs. Later scenes in the movie have inconsistencies in the color of briefs he wears. The wearing of any clothing is inconsistent with his alibis throughout the movie, as well.
