Detective Kessler recognizes the victim, who lived in the same neighborhood many years ago and childhood friend of his daughter Laurie Kessler. The killer Warren Stacy goes to the funeral and overhears Betty’s father telling Detective Kessler that his daughter had a diary. Warren breaks in Betty’s apartment and stabs and kills her roommate Karen Smalley trying to find the diary. But Karen had already delivered the journal to Detective Kessler. Leo Kessler is sure that Warren is the serial-killer and her plants a false evidence in his apartment. However, Warren’s defense lawyer presses Detective McAnn accusing him of perjury and Warren is released. Now Warren is stalking Laurie to revenge against her father.
Plot: Warren Stacy, an office equipment repairman, begins murdering women after they reject his advances.

An interesting but not entirely successful genre bender.
It’s easy to forget that in the 80s, action movies were every bit as violent as horror films and 10 to Midnight is pretty harsh. It feels like they’re attempting to make both a Friday the 13th and a Death Wish movie AT THE SAME TIME!
Charles Bronson plays a tough cop dedicated to his job. He stumbles onto a serial sex killer and obsessively hunts him down only to have the system fail him leading to a truly shocking bloodbath at the finale.
10 to Midnight is Cannon film, thus it’s over-the-top with lots of sex and violence. It’s also through and through a Bronson film so there’s a lot of tough guy grandstanding and complaints about a broken legal system that values the rights of the accused over those of the victim.
The positives of this movie are that it has a truly solid cast. Bronson actually seems to care about his performance (not always the case in his later films), the villain is creepy and frightening (he likes to attack his lady victims while he is totally nude), and the kills are intensely effective.
The negatives are that the movie is just a little too slow. There are too many cop movie cliches and I didn’t care at all about Bronson’s partner. Honestly, I feel that this movie would have worked much better as a straight forward giallo film.
This is a cop movie that occasionally turns into a slasher film which leaves a movie that can’t find a consistent tone. Fans of slashers and cop flicks are both likely to be put off by the movie but it is unique enough that I get why it has a cult following. It’s an above average latter day Bronson film and probably at least worth a look for fans that don’t mind a little (or a lot!) of bloodshed.
Nobody Noticed This Naked Guy?
10 to Midnight is one of Charles Bronson’s lesser efforts from the eighties. Essentially he takes his death wish character and gives him a badge. Problem is that when you’re in law enforcement you are bound by certain parameters that the courts have laid out.
Bronson’s problem is that he’s too close with this case. A close friend of his daughter Cindy Eilbacher is murdered and Bronson’s determined to get his man no matter what. That includes some rather clumsy planting of evidence that doesn’t sit too well with Bronson’s rookie partner Andrew Stevens.
My two big problems are that if planting evidence was the way to go here, I would think Bronson being the veteran cop he is would have done a better and undetectable job. He gets caught so easily.
But even worse is the over the top performance by the perpetrator Gene Davis. This guy strips to the birthday suit before going out to do his evil deeds, actually walks around buck naked in the street. And nobody of course notices anything.
I will say this Davis certainly wasn’t bad to look at and that’s a distraction to be sure. Still the whole idea is just plain ridiculous.
This is a fine group of talented players who get defeated by one preposterous story.
