“The Dead Pool” quotes

Movie The Dead Pool
Title The Dead Pool
Year 1988
Director Buddy Van Horn
Genre Thriller, Mystery, Action
Plot – Police inspector Harry Callahan runs into a series of murders which gradually reveal to be connected to a television game show, specialized in violent programs. Questioning the dazed responsible for the show is useless and Callahan doesn't know how to conduct his researches. The only thing he knows is that in every crime scene he punctually finds a sheet of names and many of them are marked by the words "rest in peace", until the inspector reads his own name on that very sheet. With the help of a journalist, Samantha Walker, and Al Quan, a young Chinese policeman, Callaghan finally identifies the author of the crimes, a furious psychopath.
