In his directorial debut, Peter Bogdanovich weaves two disparate story lines into a terrifying moment of confrontation. In seemingly unrelated events, aging horror film star Orlok (Boris Karloff) announces his retirement, and an apparently average young man (Tim O'Kelly) accumulates an arsenal of rifles and handguns. As the pace quickens, O'Kelly turns into a murderous sniper, showing up at a drive-in theater where Orlok is making his final personal appearance.
