starts pretty well with a nice mood... but turns into mud.
I had never heard of this film until last night. I saw it yesterday evening on cable. I like to see what some film makers do when they're in a very tight budget, as in this case, but this movie is very far away from Carpenter's fantastic and enjoyable low budget movie "They live".

I got caught up but the first 30 minutes or so, I was enjoying the mood, the photography and lighting, camera plans and movements, but that mood starts to fade away, and the argument becomes a bit muddy...

Belzer does a pretty good job until the end of the movie, contributing with a decent representation of a somewhat interesting character.

James Russo wasn't able to talk anyone into his "bad" attitude, and there are many question marks to put to the weak and sometimes inconsistent argument, namely the relation between Russo and Darlanne Fluegel, which is quite OK and very sexy throughout the movie.

After 1 hour, you start wondering what happened to the mood shown at the beginning, and it just gets pretty tedious until the predictable ending, with the blonde angelical nurse/doctor becoming a "devil" in leather driving a red firebird.

Gladly, the psycho man in the plot is played by Billy Drago, which is quite entertaining, as usual.

Bottom line - see it if you have absolutely nothing better to do, otherwise don't waste your time on it.
