Allen Garfield had reverted professionally to his given name of Goorwitz when he starred in Sketches of A Strangler. He also returned to his early-1970s predilection for starring in kinky, independently-produced projects. Here he is cast as a painter who obsesses over beautiful, unapproachable women. His fixations take a homicidal turn as several streetwalkers fall victim to Goorwitz' homicidal impulses. In Bucket of Blood fashion, Life imitates art in Sketches of a Strangler, and vice versa.
