New York Times - 10/16/1981
"...A very fond and painstaking reincarnation....A small, original, offbeat film..."
A young girl is brutally attacked by a maniac and her date is slain as Galesburg College becomes the focus of a series of murders.
Description by Ryko Distribution:
In the peaceful town of Galesburg, Illinois, a brutal serial killer targets the local teenagers. As the bodies pile up, Sheriff John Brady (Michael Murphy) suspects the killer is connected with the high school's Psychology department. There is something sinister about the school "research" program on behavioral control and Brady is determined to uncover the truth. But he better find the answers fast before his own son (Dan Shor) gets drawn into the strange experiments himself! Co-Written by Oscar Winner Bill Condon (DREAMGIRLS, KINSEY), STRANGE BEHAVIOR is a frighteningly gory homage to 50's "pulp" horror films.
