These days, San Francisco is terrorized by the Zodiac Killer, a serialkiller who strikes without warning and without motive, kills people rather at random, then gloats about it in the media - and police Sgt Pittman (Ray Lynch) and Officer Heller (Tom Pittman) are left completely in the dark, to such an extent that they visit a psychic (Aaron Koslow) - who gives them nothing but useless advice ...

Meet Grover (Bob Jones), a truck driver who after hours likes to dress up as a rich businessman to pick up girls - and sometimes it works even. Thing is, he's got some kind of inferiority complex because of his failed marriage, and now his ex-wife (Dion Marinkovich) doesn't even let him see their daughter anymore - a situation that comes to a head when he brings a gun over to her place. Ultimately, the police is called and they shoot Grover dead - but not before he claims to be the Zodiac Killer. Thing is, he isn't, and it doesn't take the police long to figure that out ...

Meet Jerry (Hal Reed), the nice guy next door, who always greets his neighbours, has a solid job as a mailman that seems to fulfill him, who doesn't sleep around despite various offers, and who cares about nothing more than his bunny rabbits - in other words, a model citizen ... unless of course you count the fact that he is actually the Zodiac Killer ...

 

The Zodiac Killer is not a "good" film by any stretch of imagination, its direction is rather functional while its acting is on the over-the-top side of things, The budget doesn't always meet the demands of the story, and the film at times looks seedy even if there's no nudity or sex in it - and that's what makes the movie great from today's point of view, it's a fun testament of the bygone era of grindhouse cinema that didn't care too much about ... anything really (don't look at this wearing today's political correctness glasses), that really throws bizarre ideas (like Jerry praying to the slaves of Atlantis) or fun kills into the story rather at random - and that really has a creepy ending due to its refusal to end things on a happy note.

You might want to like yesteryear's grindhouse cinema to begin with, but then it's well worth a watch!
