Acclaimed genre filmmaker Curtis Harrington (NIGHT TIDE, WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH HELEN?) was at his best when dissecting the minds of nutzoids, paranoids and psychos. A brooding study on the nurturing of a serial killer, THE KILLING KIND is one of Harrington’s most potent works.
Terry (John Savage, THE DEER HUNTER) is released from prison for a brutal assault in which he too was a victim. Returning home to his mother (Ann Sothern) and their boardinghouse, Terry is unable to cope with freedom and is uncertain about how to appease his ever-growing desire to harm those around him. Co-starring Cindy Williams (“Laverne & Shirley”) and lushly photographed by Mario Tosi (CARRIE).
