“He has a psychopathic disregard for human life.”
An art teacher (Suzy Kendall) at a girls’ school in London catches a glimpse of the man who raped two of her students and murdered one of them. With the help of Detective Velyan (Frank Finlay) and a reporter (Freddie Jones), she sets a trap to try to bait the killer.
This British slasher flick (known as The Creepers in the U.K., where it was recently re-released on DVD) will primarily be of interest to either fans of the genre, or those who enjoy watching teenage girls in skimpy school uniforms. While it’s difficult to guess who the real killer is here, it’s also difficult to care much one way or the other. Kendall is a beautiful leading lady, but she’s given such unoriginal scenes to walk through that she doesn’t leave much of an impression.
Redeeming Qualities and Moments:
- A competent, if uninspired, tale of killer-baiting
No. Though Peary lists this as a cult movie in the back of his book, it’s certainly not must-see viewing.
