Schizo (1976) aka The Recruiter

3 / 5

Kinda dull for a Pete Walker picture plus you can see the "twist" coming from miles away. Still it's easy enough to sit through and it does offer some decent slashing, it's just not gripping or all that interesting. We meet a young ice skater who believes her ex-stepfather is out to kill her because he killed her mother. Thing is nobody seems to see this guy but her, and anyone who seems to be close to her keeps ending up dead. Will she be able to survive, or are things not as they seem? Yeah not a pot boiler but it makes do, if you want a mindless slasher you could do worse.
