New Yorkers start going on random killing sprees. Their reason? GOD TOLD ME TO.
With Shock Till You Drop editor Sam Zimmerman and special prizes!
Armed with nothing but a cheap mail order rifle, an everyday Joe turns expert sniper, randomly taking out over a dozen New Yorkers. Devout detective Peter Nicholas (Lo Bianco) is on the case and gets shaken to the core when he finds out the killer’s motive: God told him to do it. As the investigation continues, more and more New Yorkers go on divinely inspired rampages and it’s up to Detective Nicholas to find out if these people are acting on God’s word, or if this sudden spat of violence has a more terrestrial cause.
