Paul D’s review published on Letterboxd:
24. Any movie starring Tom fuckin' Atkins!
Someone is randomly killing the good ladies and gentlemen of New York City, but although there are reports that it's a cop who is responsible, it's only Detective Tom fuckin' Atkins who believes them.
Larry Cohen is a great ideas man, he has a way of taking a simple notion and running with it. Here we have a killer who isn't deranged, he isn't suffering from some mental illness, he hasn't gone off the rails, and he hasn't risen from the dead, instead he's brain-damaged. There's no way you would get away with saying that these days.
What we have here is a top line action horror with some great stunt work and a top-notch cast, apart from Mr Atkins, you have Bruce Campbell, William Smith, Richard Roundtree and of course Robert Z'Dar.
Seek it out.
