Plot Outline:

A serial killer stalks the streets of New York, scalping young women to make up for the death of his mother - an abusive prostitute who recently died in an accident. When he is photographed by a woman in the park, they strike up a friendship... perhaps she will finally be the one. -- Chris Kavan

A gruesome and grimy looking slasher that focuses entirely on the killer. The intent is to show the killer's mental illness, and to a point I guess it does shine the maniac spotlight on him, but all I ever got from his psyche was a troubled past with an abusive mother. The slayings are graphic, disturbing, and sleazy, with very detailed effects work adding to the grossness. I find the whole film to be an empty, but effectively sickening experience. Take that however you like.
