Some may rather classify 1984's FEAR CITY as an "action thriller" rather than a horror film, but it's about a murderer who preys on strippers, thus making it a swell candidate for this column. The movie is led by Tom Berenger, Billy Dee Williams, Jack Scalia and a barrell of other familiar names you can't put faces to. It follows two highly successful strip club owners whose staff of "exotic dancers" starts slowly getting picked off by a serial killer who's also a martial arts expert. Sounds like it might have been pitched as JASON TAKES MANHATTAN if Jason was a sexually frustrated ninja, which would have also been inaccurate. Luckily, the filmmakers made sure not to pull their punches when it came to dancing naked ladies, the most shining example being Melanie Griffith (a slightly more familiar face).
