Wow. This is a keeper. Loosely based on the Zodiac's reign of terror, this laugh-out-loud horror-thriller fully satisfies the right type of viewer. While the acting is the source for most of the hilarity, there are scenes that actually provide some surreal, creepy moments. That's sometimes hard for filmmakers on $1.05 budget. This holds up to repeated viewings and never fails to entertain. What we need is a new film about the Zodiac killings, probably some of the most interesting, yet sadly, unsolved crimes of the last century. This release from Academy is misspelled as THE ZODIAK KILLER, so take that in consideration when looking for around for it.

I must admit I had to laugh out loud when Doodles Weaver, a long-time comic actor, appeared in a small part as the Zodiac Killer's next door neighbor.Doodles was a holdover from the Fifties' Golden Age of Television and he had the funniest lines in this movie. Some of the murder scenes were rather intense and I felt that movie held my attention. The Zodiac in this movie had no real m.o for the police to follow and this perhaps explains why he was never captured in real life. I found it interesting that the murderer in this movie carried around his disguises (wig, fake glasses with a plastic nose and, most noticeably, a black executioner outfit. The attack of the young couple is very graphic and still quite powerful after all of these years. If you're interested in the real-life Zodiac case, you'll need to take this movie with a grain of salt!

This low, low budget thriller attempts to seriously cast a light on the reality of serial killers in our society, purporting to be &quot;based on the facts&quot;. It soon came in the wake of the real life Zodiac murders that plagued San Francisco in the late 1960s. While obviously it&#39;s not nearly as polished or as well known as &quot;Dirty Harry&quot;, it is a genuinely interesting curio. This viewer actually thought that the acting wasn&#39;t that bad; in fact, it&#39;s better than one might ordinarily find in such B level fare.<br/><br/>At first, we follow the day to day activities of two guys: harried mailman Jerry (Hal Reed, &quot;The Doberman Gang&quot;) and volatile truck driver Grover (Bob Jones). Jerry comes across as a nice enough, polite enough man to others, while Bob likes to impress women by creating a false identity of a successful businessman. While the characters are somewhat entertaining to watch, they&#39;re just not as intriguing as the murder spree that will soon begin in earnest. While the killer will be taunting the authorities and the media with calls and letters, two frustrated detectives, Sgt. Pittman (Ray Lynch) and Officer Heller (Tom Pittman) will try to work the case.<br/><br/>The raw, gritty approach is a plus, although &quot;The Zodiac Killer&quot; might not be trashy or exploitative enough for some viewer tastes. Location shooting is decent; there&#39;s sufficient violence and a little bit of gore. At times screenwriters Ray Cantrell and Manny Cardoza and director Tom Hanson create some humour with the material. We see our ego-driven, confident maniac (who&#39;s identified sooner in the movie than one might expect) actually kill one woman with her own trunk hood, and another with her own spare tire.<br/><br/>While there&#39;s nothing really special here, this makes for some mildly amusing entertainment for seekers of obscure curiosities.<br/><br/>Six out of 10.
