Pure 70's and All The Better For It
1 May 2006 | by retrogamesSee all my reviews

I watched this movie not expecting too much as the cover is really (and i mean one of the worst I've ever seen) bad. From the cover (as there is no description of the movie here at IMDb); "Freewheeling Hank a local good ol'boy decides to mend his wayward ways and contribute to the community by becoming a hero and helping folk out of scrapes but passes all the glory off onto his bumbling masked sidekick who soon becomes a celebrity to the grateful townsfolk.

Meanwhile a psychopathic killer has been terrorising young women in the area, stabbing them and leaving his mark, a dollop of chocolate ice cream on his victims. Hank is soon forced to get on the trail of the killer and uses the beautiful Marsha as bait but things go wrong as the local law arrest Hank as the prime murder suspect." This is full of recognisable 70's actors from TV, and is very enjoyable in a 'flares' and 'kipper' tie way. In the UK the movie is called 'The Chocolate Killer'
