About the Movie
In his directorial debut, Peter Bogdanovich weaves two disparate story lines into a terrifying moment of confrontation. In seemingly unrelated events, aging horror film star Orlok (Boris Karloff) announces his retirement, and an apparently average young man (Tim O'Kelly) accumulates an arsenal of rifles and handguns. As the pace quickens, O'Kelly turns into a murderous sniper, showing up at a drive-in theater where Orlok is making his final personal appearance.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Targets scores an unnerving bullseye.
Fresh: Aware of the virtue of implied violence, Bogdanovich conveys moments of shock, terror, suspense and fear.
Fresh: An interesting response to the demands of low-budget genre filmmaking.
Fresh: A fascinatingly complex commentary on American mythology, exploring the relationship between the inner world of the imagination and the outer world of violence and paranoia, both of which were relevant to contemporary American traumas.
