Review

Our Score
Apart from a handful of low-budget movies, writer/director Terry Bishop spent much of his career in TV, which would appear to have been the British cinema's loss if this concise thriller is anything to go by. The dialogue does strike a false note every now and then, but Bishop succeeds in re-creating a world of tawdry glamour that is a far cry from the glitz of today's supermodels as a serial killer targets a magazine's pin-ups. Bishop also sustains the suspense throughout, and you're never quite sure who's going to walk into the trap laid by the publisher to catch the killer. Steptoe and Son fans will be interested in the presence of a young Harry H Corbett in the cast.
