Targets / Paramount ; a Saticoy production ; screenplay by Peter Bogdanovich ; story by Polly Platt and Peter Bogdanovich ; directed and produced by Peter Bogdanovich.

Old Hollywood collides with New Hollywood, and screen horror with real-life horror, in the startling debut feature from Peter Bogdanovich. The chillingly prescient vision of American-made carnage casts Boris Karloff as a version of himself: an aging horror movie icon whose fate intersects with that of a seemingly ordinary young man on a psychotic shooting spree around Los Angeles. Charged with provocative ideas about the relationship between mass media and mass violence.
