Summer of Sam


It's 1977 in the Bronx, and the weather, Studio 54, disco and love dens like Plato's Retreat are red hot. Then a serial killer begins to murder brunettes and parked lovers. At the eye of that storm is a chronic adulterer and his dutiful wife, whose marriage is slowly unraveling. All is well (hidden) until one of their friends comes back to the old 'hood, sporting a mohawk and UK accent. Then the finger pointing and suspicion begins and all hell breaks loose, and everybody is accusing everybody of being the son of Sam.

Kate Eident: This movie rocks!!!!

Karen Velez (43): I truly enjoyed this movie and I've sat and watched it a number of times. I enjoy the music, dancing and way of dress especially. I was 19 when Son of Sam was out and about so, from a personal standpoint, I was truly feeling this flick. Disco was tremendously BIG and punk rock was trying to hard to !@#$! that up. My friend's friend, Stacy Moskowitcz, was one of Son of Sam's victims.
