Timothy Wayne Folsome's urban horror film Cutthroat Alley features a masked serial killer who slits the throats of each of his victims in the hood of South Central Los Angeles. The film turns when it seems as if someone is out to murder the murderer. Written by
There isn't a cliché writer/director Timothy Wayne Folsome overlooks inthis film. There is the Talking Killer, that term Roger Ebert invented for themurderer who could finish everything up but chooses instead to talk, usually ina long-winded manner. There is the Rubber Duckie rule, another Ebert term, inwhich the killer reveals why he turned to murder. It's usually preposterous andCutthroat Alley doesn't change that.
Cutthroat Alley is your average blaxploitation horror flick. The onlyproblem is that it's at least thirty years too late. The film is nothing morethan a vulgar ripoff of the franchise, right down to the masked slasher with a sharp knife offing peopleconnected to the main character. There isn't anything good in this film. It'sbadly acted, badly staged and badly directed, all in equal measure. Not even themurders are exciting; slasher film fans will be disappointed by the lack of anygory details. I haven't seen such bad death scenes since The ScreamingSkull, and that was the version.
