“Like Frederick Friedel or Charles B. Pierce directing HALLOWEEN, everything about this southern-fried North Carolina proto-slasher is completely inexplicable.”
— Liz, LETTERBOXD
Filmed in Charlotte, North Carolina by one-time director/writer/producer/editor/stunt coordinator/casting director Dave A. Adams, ANOTHER SON OF SAM is a dirt-cheap “true crime” rip-off that has no connection to Son of Sam, let alone another Son of Sam. But it does have an escaped mental patient named Harvey, sweet speedboat jumps, SWAT troopers, and a lounge singer named Johnny Charro. This is 74 minutes of mid-sentence freeze frames, drunken camera tricks, big fat synths, bloody deaths, and slow motion chases, all conspiring to build a ridiculous facsimile of reality.
