Shot in 1976, this film presents the true story of a Texarkana, Arkansas crime spree in 1946. World War II had ended bringing the military boys back home and Texarkana was enjoying peace and prosperity. From the murky depths of night, a killer mysteriously emerged to taunt and terrorize the inhabitants of the quiet town. Young couples were attacked in their cars on lovers lane in intervals of 21 days...and even a famous Texas Ranger couldn't solve the case.
The story is presented in documentary style, with a narrator weaving direction through the onslaught of terror. There is no shock value to this movie. It is presented with raw facts and the chilling realization that this crime could happen anywhere at any time. The Phantom Killer of Texarkana, always wearing a hood to cover his face, left a crude and bloody path of destruction in his wake and throughout this film you can feel the terror gripping the tiny town. This movie is a necessary selection for anyone who loves sitting in the dark and being scintillatingly terrified or for anyone who simply enjoys a true unsolved mystery.
any fan of true crime or story telling movies.
Based on a real-life serial killer ....the actual case
was in its time known as the "moonlight murderer".
If you like being scared without being shocked this film
is very scary.
This movie is not a large budget,big name film...it
was made with the idea of getting a true life very
frightning account of murder on film.
I am a fan of Horror films such as Halloween and
friday the 13th films( by the way once you have seen
T.T.D.S you will see where the idea of jason
in a white mask originated)
I am a big fan of Charles B. Pierce and wish he was more
mainstream.Without giving away the plot this film reminds us
all that in life the good guys do not allways get their man.
I would love to have this film on dvd however I dont believe
its available on dvd.
