Beautiful Rachel Ward carries this slasher flick aka Terror Eyes.

A helmeted killer in black motorcycle garb terrorizes women around Boston, viciously slashing and decapitating the victims.

Could the murders have something to do with Professor Millet (Snyder) at Wendell College?

And will lovely student Eleanor (Ward) be next on the stalker's list?

Stalwart police investigator Judd Austin (Mann) hopes to find the killer before he can slash again.

Not as consistent or as effective as it could have been, this occasionally spunky - if cordial - splatter effort benefits from decent production standards and a game cast.

Ward (of The Final Terror) delivers a good show, while the ending is a nice twist.

And if killers on motorbikes turn you on, feel free to try the similar 1974 giallo What Have They Done to Your Daughters?
