A series of motiveless murders committed by various residents haunts the streets of New York: a sniper shoots people from a water tower; a father murders his entire family; and a cop (Andy Kaufman) opens fire during a St. Patrick's Day parade. The only consistent pattern to the crimes involves the perpetrators calm admissions of guilt, explaining, "God told me to." While investigating the murders, catholic police detective Peter Nicholas (Tony Lo Bianco) is troubled by the evidence and can't seem to shake the feeling that his own fate is somewhat linked to this series of motiveless murders. As he comes closer to the truth, his worst fears are confirmed.
Exploitation and horror master Larry Cohen, known for cult classics such as IT'S ALIVE and HELL UP IN HARLEM, as well as penning more commercial fare such as PHONE BOOTH starring Colin Farrell, presents this mystical murder mystery. A Catholic police detective (Tony Lo Bianco) searches New York City's occult underworld for answers to a series of bizarre and seemingly unrelated killings. In a strange twist, it's not the murderers themselves he's after -- they didn't even try to elude the law, and all are in custody. However, each had only four words to say when confessing: "God told me to." Comedian Andy Kaufman appears in a small role as a police officer who begins shooting in the middle of New York's St. Patrick's Day parade.
