Summer of sam is my favourite movie.it is set in the hot summer of 1977 when a serial killer is on the loose in new york.although the film is baed on a true story the killer is basicly a sub plot.the main plot is the people in the neighbourhood as their live fall apart.it is such a great movie.
It Was A Time They'd Never Forget. The dynamic John Leguizamo (Spawn, Executive Decision) is teamed with Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino (At First Sight, The Replacement Killers) in an electrifying, must-see movie that takes you back to New York City's infamous summer of 1977! The heat is soaring to record highs, blackouts are filling the streets with looters...and the murders of a man who calls himself the Son of Sam are gripping the giant city in fear! As friends in a small Italian neighbourhood become obsessed with the idea that the Son of Sam is someone nearby, the madman's fearsome plague of terror becomes the catalyst that prompts relationships to fall apart and trust to disintegrate into dread! Also starring Adrien Brody (The Thin Red Line) and Jennifer Esposito (I Still Know What You Did Last Summer), this powerful motion picture tells the gritty and hard-edged story about one nightmare season in the city that never sleeps!
