October 21, 2022 10:24 AM - Subscribe

A cop investigates a string of murders committed by strangers who claim “God” told them to kill. But are the killers actually talking about the heavenly father? Or is someone pulling their strings? If Det. Nicholas (Tony Lo Bianco) really wants to know, he’ll have to descend into a netherworld of deranged faith and confront his own connection to a homicidal messiah with a perverse plan for the soul of mankind.

Deborah Raffin, Sandy Dennis, Sylvia Sidney, Sam Levene, Robert Drivas, Mike Kellin, Richard Lynch, Sammy Williams, Jo Flores Chase, William Roerick, Lester Rawlins, Harry Bellaver, George Patterson, Walter Steele, Andy Kaufman.

Written, directed, and produced by Larry Cohen.

Currently streaming in the US on Shudder and Pluto TV. JustWatch listing.

Larry Cohen is a singular filmmaker.

Larry Cohen was on Gilbert Gottfried's podcast a few years ago, about a year before he (Cohen) died.

I like this picture until the third act, where I think it falls apart completely. Love Larry Cohen, though.
