Anytime I get the opportunity to fix genre film blind spots with great 4k scans from the likes of Shout! Thus, this was a match made in heaven. Then struggling Cannon Films sold their company to two cousins from Israel in and what followed was a series of B-movie action films that remain genre defining even today. And, this blend of serious detective film, ridiculous melodrama, and just the right amount of B-movie cheese is nothing if not truly a Cannon film. The audience is introduced to the killer early on, as we are treated to a cat and mouse game of a killer who gets his sexual gratification from murder.
This is a scummy little sewer of a movie, a cesspool that lingers sadistically on shots of a killer terrifying and killing helpless women, and then is shameless enough to end with an appeal to law and order. The people who made "From Ten to Midnight" have every right to be ashamed of themselves -- and that includes Charles Bronson , whose name on the marquee is the only reason anybody would come to see it. The movie stars Bronson as a Los Angeles police captain on the trail of a mad slasher. Now see if this plot sounds familiar: The creep is a psychopath who gets his kicks out of anonymous phone calls to women. After he warms up over the phone, he likes to crawl into their apartments, take off his clothes, and run around stark naked carving them up with butcher knives.

See the full list. See the list. In Los Angeles, the rookie Detective Paul McAnn teams up with the veteran Detective Leo Kessler to investigate the murder of Betty Johnson and her boyfriend that were stabbed by a naked serial-killer in a park.
