Summer of Sam

Summer of Sam It was one of the hottest summers on record and produced the city's first serial killer, whom the tabloids, in a frenzy to boost their respective circulations, quickly dubbed, ''Son of Sam.''

''Summer of Sam,'' is the tale of a vicious murderer who stalked his way through the Italian-American section of The Bronx, preying on innocent young women.

Motivated by ignorance and greed, Joey T., a 32-year-old thug and his gang of flinkies, become obsessed with the idea that Son of Sam is someone from 'the neighbourhood'. Armed with twisted logic, the gang makes a list of everyone they think is a freak-o. As the temperatures and body count rise, the city becomes immersed in terror.
