Birds of Prey Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Shot for a mere $400,000 (Canadian) in a little over a month at the end of 1984 in Edmonton, Alberta, this tepid thriller readily betrays its low-budget, hasty origins. Beware of a film with characters with names like "Lever" and "Smarm" that is produced, written, edited, directed, and starred in by a modest two-person crew (Jorge Montesi as Detective Carlos Solo and Peter Haynes as Smarm). While the title of this film is shared by six other movies at least, starting in 1927, its plot is distinctive. It involves a serial killer tracked by Carlos Solo until the evidence seems to mysteriously indicate that Solo's criminally-inclined friend might be connected to the slayings. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
