This one is about a bunch of seemingly random murders committed by New Yorkers. A sniper, a cop opening fire during a parade, a father killing his family and so on. When a detective looks into the matter to find out what is happening he learns that the guilty parties only state "God Told Me To" then they off themselves. What could the greater link be and can the terrible murders be stopped? It's actually a pretty great film courtesy of Mr. Larry Cohen, especially considering it's one of his lesser known pieces. This is one of those mysteries that keeps you hanging on until of course you get the truth. It's got blood, intrigue, good acting and an interesting story...what more could you be missing?
