This disturbing low-budget psycho-thriller stars twins Robert Story and David Story as a serial strangler and his detective brother on opposite sides of the same case. Robert's psychotic aversion to romantic rejection leads to a growing heap of female bodies in his walk-in freezer; David's eventual discovery of his brother's bloody misdeeds lands him in on the frozen corpse pile as well. Robert then assumes the detective's identity, enabling him to continue his killing spree unabated. Thoroughly sleazy but lacking any real suspense, this production suffers from poor performances by both brothers and a story that fails to exploit the plot-twisting possibilities of the identical-twin concept. Also known as Love in Cold Blood.
