White knuckler of a thriller about a homicidal sniper and his run in with an aging horror star remains a horrific portrait of America’s youth gone bad. Masterfully directed by Peter Bogdanovich, the film was made only after Bogdanovich agreed to utilize left over footage from Roger Corman’s THE TERROR and hire Boris Karloff for two days of shooting upon the legendary producer’s request. The finished product is the crowing achievement of Karloff’s career and one of the best thrillers to come out of the 1960s. Amazing climax at a drive-in theater.
