Shot on videotape, Once the Killing Starts received its world TV premiere on the ABC late-night potpourri Wide World of Entertainment. Patrick O'Neal plays a college professor who coolheadedly murders his wife. O'Neal establishes a perfect alibi and goes on with his life. But before long, he starts receiving anonymous letters from someone who intimates that he (or she) knows O'Neal's untidy little secret. Who is this correspondent, and how can O'Neal put the person out of the way? As the title indicates, murder begets murder in Once the Killing Starts.
