Kristy (Celeste Martinez) is a good girl, she has come from Ohio to LA to study singing, she gladly accepts being treated like a slave by her alcoholic couchpotato aunt (Beverly Bassette) and her heavy-partying cousin Angel (Chase Monroe), and she by and large stays away from the party circuit her cousin invites her to, doesn't do drugs or heavy drinking.

Grahm (Randy Tobin) is a weird one, his social and conversational skills are incredibly limited, he is not exactly intelligent, his fashion sense suggests 1970's porn, he seems to be invariably horny, and doesn't refrain from picking up hookers, too. But he is well liked in the party circuit, mainly because he always has the best drugs, and is known for prompt delivery.

Good girl Kristy has immediately caught Grahm's eye, and first he tries every corny pickup line in the book on her, then, after that doesn't work, he spies after her, to wait for the right moment to catch her alone. Kristy, I might want to add, is getting more and more freaked out by Grahm's behaviour ... and she very much should be, because there is one thing I haven't told you yet about Grahm: He's a serialkiller, specializing on young women who sexually arouse him, and he kills his victims in increasingly violent ways.

And now he's apparently after Kristy ...

Quite a merciless film, and quite frankly one you need a strong stomach for, Los Angeles Ripper, despite its many very graphic murder scenes, is more than just a tour through a slaughterhouse. Basically, despite all the gore and gruesomeness, Los Angeles Ripper is a character-driven suspense piece. Basically, the main players of this film-long game of cat-and-mouse (Grahm and Kristy) are set up in the first ten minutes or so, and you pretty much know the film will amount to a brutal finale between the two of them, you just don't know the when and the how, and by keeping you guessing the film builds up a tension all of its own, with Grahm's murders and Kristy's singing lessons (really) being mere (if welcome) distractions from the main plot. and that both Celeste Martinez and Randy Tobin fill their roles perfectly doesn't hurt one bit either, of course.

A very good film in fact, but as mentioned, you need to have a strong stomach for it.
