KIRKUS REVIEW

No mystery, just a good case of creeps in a horror tale of a black jaguar, four mangled young misses, and a maniac, in South American Cludad Real. Showy but smooth and chilling series of stalks and kills -- attributed to the jaguar by the police -- but to a pervert by press agent Manning, responsible for the animal's first public appearance. Using his girl as bait, Manning gets his killer. Sanguinary -- suspenseful.
