“It has much in common with thematically similar grindhouse epics like THE HOLLYWOOD STRANGLER VS. THE SKID ROW SLASHER and DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE.” -- HYSTERIA LIVES!
A “true crime” mood-piece inspired by notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, KILLER’S DELIGHT is an intriguing mix of proto-slasher chills and detective drama thrills. An unknown killer in a van has been stalking women in Northern California. Sgt. Vince De Carlo has been assigned to the case but finds himself with almost nothing to go on. That is, until the murderer begins picking off girls who frequent a local public pool. With the aid of psychologist Carol Thompson, De Carlo begins to devise a plan to lure the killer into the open. Written by Maralyn Thoma (DAYS OF OUR LIVES), this gritty true crime thriller has been newly restored in 4K from its original 35mm camera negative.
