Tom Berenger, Melanie Griffith and Billy Dee Williams star in this tough crime thriller about a talent agent who takes the law into his own hands when his strippers are targeted by a serial killer.
Director: Abel Ferrara
Strippers in Manhattan are being stalked and maimed by a psycho-killer. A conflicted ex-boxer-turned-talent-manager (Tom Berenger) and his business partner (Jack Scalia), who represent some of the girls, set out to find him before he strikes again. Filmmaker Abel Ferrara made his name with independently financed productions The Driller Killer and Ms. 45, which went on to become cult classics, and Fear City was notable for being his first attempt at semi-mainstream filmmaking. But the director – synonymous with New York City – managed not to compromise any of his trademark grittiness, delivering a wild and sleazy thrill ride that captures the '80s Big Apple in all its lawless glory.
