SYNOPSIS: Tagline: "The Ex-con, The Senator, The Pervert, The Lesbian, The Professor, , The Sheriff, The Sadist. One of them is a murderer. All of them make the most fascinating murder mystery in years."
Here's a forgotten 70's suspense film with a nice late career performance from Burt Lancaster. He plays an ex-cop out on parole for murder. His pal Cameron Mitchell gets him a job as the overnight security guard at a college. Not long after he begins his new job a troubled college girl (a young Catherine Bach), whom he befriended, is found murdered. Sheriff Harris Yulin feels the case is closed after arresting a creepy janitor for the crime. However, Lancaster's old cop instincts kick in and he begins to investigate the murder mystery on his own. Soon he finds himself a target of the real culprits. A very solid supporting cast help make this sleeper worth catching. Filmed on location at Clemson College in South Carolina.
