Description by OLDIES.com:

A new breed of anti-hero appeared in 1970s cinema. Obsession, violence and instability characterized these protagonists, regardless of what side of the law they were on. The Stone Killer is underworld argot for these particularly cold-blooded and ruthless characters and New York detective Torrey (Charles Bronson) is just such a man. Chief among Torrey's enemies is mob tycoon Vescari (Martin Balsam), an old-school capo who has eluded Torrey and is now expanding out west. To track him down, Torrey must travel from the seamy underworld of Spanish Harlem and Little Italy to laid-back Southern California -- skid row, Hollywood and the canyons. A bad shooting provides the excuse to get Torrey out of New York, where he is viewed as a problem by the police brass.

In Los Angeles, Torrey has the same issues, but he finds himself in a very different society. Mathews (Ralph Waite), a bungling bigot distracted by problems with his teenage daughter, is assigned by Detective Captain Daniels (Norman Fell) to assist Torrey -- and keep tabs on him. In the idyllic world of Southern California's Topanga Canyon, Torrey meets Gerry (Kelly Miles), an airline stewardess convicted on a bad check charge who has left the straight world to live in a psychedelic commune. Torrey isn't interested in her or the kaleidoscope of New Age pleasures; he uses her to get closer to Vescari and his latest score.

True to the tradition of the '70s anti-hero, Torrey is never distracted -- he's relentless in pursuing a kind of justice indistinguishable from vigilantism. And in the end, out in the desert and far from civilization, he will be forced to confront evil on its own savage terms. Newly remastered.

Product Description:

Lou Torrey is a dedicated plainclothes cop, who was transferred from New York to L.A. for being abusive with suspects. The dubious mafioso Vescari (Martin Balsam) hires a group of Vietnam veteran sharpshooters to assassinate his opposition. Little does he know that one man, Torrey, has made plans to stop him. As the two men wage a bloody war against each other in the streets of both L.A. and New York, a trail of dead is left behind, proving Torrey to be the STONE KILLER.

Extremely graphic, STONE KILLER teams action director Michael Winner with Charles Bronson. Having previously worked together in CHATO'S LAND and THE MECHANIC, the twosome have developed an experienced repertoire and it shows. STONE KILLER overwhelms the viewer with blood, bullets, and explosions. This film is a must-see for any fan of the DEATH WISH series.
