Murder, suicides, snipers, Andy Kaufman shooting up the St. Patty's Day parade...it's kinda like the nightly news, but better. Director Larry Cohen's realistic take on mass hysteria, and a Christlike cult figure that puts New York in a panic, is so successful at creating a huge disaster on a small budget you wish that such practicality existed in today's studio snoozefests. That means you, Michael Bay.
