Byron Orlok (Boris Karloff) is a retiring horror-star bidding farewell to the limelight. Bobby Thompson (Tim O’Kelly) is an unassuming but disturbed Vietnam veteran who suddenly embarks on a murderous shooting rampage.
As Byron makes one final public appearance, the two’s worlds collide as Bobby brings carnage to a suburban Los Angeles drive-in cinema.
Both a comment on the terrors of contemporary America and homage to the horror films of Roger Corman, this thrilling crime drama launched the career of its director Peter Bogdanovich.
Hailed as one of the most powerful films of the late 1960s, Targets is presented here as a brand-new High Definition remaster and on Blu-ray for the very first time.
