So how does one stop a clever serial killer who knifes women to death while in the nude all because they won’t go out on a date with him.? Sick Charles Bronson on his ass, that’s how.

 

One of the better Bronson vehicles from the Cannon Group, 10 TO MIDNIGHT plays like a Dirty Harry meets Friday the 13th hybrid, combining elements of the cop thriller with the slasher film. Director J. Lee Thompson sets up some fairly suspenseful set pieces in which the nude killer, well played by Gene Davis, stalks his female victims. Bronson ultimately administers his typical brand of justice, but not before a gory time was had by all. The story is based on the real life murders of eight nurses by serial killer Richard Speck. What a shame there wasn’t a Bronson in his life.
