The Night Stalker Reviews:

Lou Diamond Phillips gives a Brilliant and mesmerizing performance as Ramirez "The Night Stalker". It's a wonderfully sustained characterization, and deserves probably more attention that it will get. In truth it's an award winning performance and could be remembered at the time Emmy's are distributed. Unfortunately the female role is nowhere near as interesting. Whether this is a fault of the writer, director or the actress, she just seems so much less interesting than Phillips.But Phillip's performance is so good, h never stoops to the obvious and makes no effort to ingratiate himself or the part he's playing. I have never been a particular fanatic of his, but no I will pay more attention.


Lou Diamond Phillips stellar performance as the serial assassin Richard Ramirez was simply wasted testing opposite actress Bellamy Young who plays a fictional lawyer called Kit (Katherine) whose own life was supposedly haunted by the true Richard Ramirez's 1980's killing spree as the infamous Night Stalker as she lived in the California area.Yes, the majority of incidents described as event in Richard Ramirez's teens and the film's killings outlined in this fictional biopic now occurred and are attributed to Richard Ramirez's murderous spree. However, this movie focuses on Ramirez's time in captivity and his interactions with the female lawyer Kit, who meets with Ramirez over four (4) consecutive days in an attempt to record a confession for a double murder that other boy will be executed for committing if Ramirez will not admit to being the current perpetrator. The fictional drama occurs as Kit is reliving her own teen years while the Night Stalker is all over the news during his late evening robbery, rape and vicious murder spree. Kit has her own demons to live with and the interview scenes between Kit and the shackled Richard Ramirez (Lou Diamond Phillips) are worth watching the movie if for nothing else.I hope the actually 56 year old Lou Diamond Phillips is provided an occasion to star in a several dramatic major motion pictures based on this outstanding role as the Night Stalker, because he has certainly paid his dues carrying more than one movie on his own broad shoulders and raising the bar on his fellow actors/actresses to follow his lead. "Lead" being the key word. I rate The Night Stalker a high 7 out of 10 on Lou Diamond Phillip's outstanding performance.


Richard Ramirez, the Satan worshiping "Night Stalker", was someone whose crimes and life I was needed to study years ago, one of another serial assassins for a criminal justice class. He stood out at one of the more understandable, among the many I researched both from private and academic interest, because of his background: traumatized in few methods from an early age. Ultimately, however, his crimes were horrendous, extreme and effectively could end any sympathetic tendencies towards him as a convicted criminal who confessed to many of his crimes.Engrossing, chilling and brilliantly acted by Phillips, Ramirez was "Brought to life" with all his cold intelligence and vulnerabilities in place. The subtle expressions, or at times lack thereof, the shift of eyes, the sudden violence. I felt his performance wasn't quite matched by Bellamy Young, but she was entirely believable. She played the lawyer Katherine "Kit", trying to receive a confession from him about a crime other was wrongly accused of. The movie revolves around the conflict between the two, as she seeks to gain his believe to draw more features of his crimes, which he astutely ascertained, and he to gain something from her he was denied in prison: a female victim he should exploit for his own needs. He sensed vulnerabilities beneath her cool self-assured facade, and sought them out, whether from easy curiosity or real malignancy is for the viewer to decide.Ramirez' history, his background and the traumas and happenings directly influencing what he became were shown through flashbacks, a wise choice considering Phillips age, and since he was portraying the assassin shortly before his death. The young Ramirez' performance was okay, and the vaguely seen crimes and his eventual capture were understated but at the same time dramatic.Though many features were left out about the crimes, and the most atmospheric part of the events: the intensity of the hot weather when most occurred was mostly absent, just references or dialogue. I felt that could have played more of a factor in filming, but overall "The Night Stalker" was well done. Rewatchable at least once, to catch nuances one may miss, a fast stage or glance from the characters eyes, I feel most viewers may be left with the truth of the matter. That it was a tragedy all around, absolutely for the victims, but also for Ramirez as a kid and young teen. Sympathy for the terrorizing adult, a cruel rapist and murderer? No way.
