‘Originally titled ‘The AIDS Murders’ (yes, really)…’

If only I was still running Right Wing Movie Nights…

City in Panic [1987] is the story of a mostly undisguised downtown Toronto terrorized by a serial killer nicknamed “M” after the letter left carved in the back of each victim. The story centres around talk radio host Dave Miller (David Adamson), a rumpled but strongly opinionated journalist frequently on the attack against rival right-wing newspaper scribe Alex Ramsey (Peter Roberts), who he feels is inappropriately sensationalizing the city’s latest murder spree.

M slices up a bathhouse patron, runs down a male stripper and castrates an unlucky security guard who picked the wrong glory hole.
