From watching the trailer for Dangerous People I got the notion it was going to be a savage ‘70s style exploitation killing spree. It turns out it’s actually a cat and mouse game with a lot of flashbacks and a specific look into the minds of three killers. We get three characters -- 2 are friends, Zeus and Zoltan and the other one is a would-be victim named Erica (former playboy model Angelina Leigh). Dangerous People is definitely a character study. It’s a look at what makes these three characters tick, what brought them to where they are now and their background.

Zoltan (Garo Nigoghossian, Actress Apocalypse) is the leader of the duo with Zeus (Vincent Stalba). Zeus is an unstable character who doesn't, in fact, know what he is himself. He could be gay, he could be straight. He's confused, gullible and easily influenced by those around him. Zoltan is Zeus's voice of reason and helps guide him on his way. When the two tango with Erica, then Zoltan is the one who is becoming influenced by her. It’s mind games, life history lessons in serial killing and constant shots of a portrait of an Asian couple who the group could have possibly killed above the bed they have Erica chained to. 

What works in Dangerous People is the great ‘70s vibe with the cars, clothes and the fantastic music by JD Blackfoot which is incredibly awesome and gives the movie the push it needs into that ‘70s throwback territory. It has some great looking girls and enough nudity to give it a high T ‘n A factor, especially lead Angelina Leigh whose bodily assets grace the screen frequently. The conversation in the bar at the beginning about the dildo is hilarious.

What doesn't work in Dangerous People is the story and the slow pace it moves along in. We get way too many flashbacks, too much gibber jabber, just people talking in a bedroom and it gets slow and uninteresting after a while. There's also not much of a pay-off in the conclusion.   The two male leads, especially Vincent Stalba are borderline annoying. Any man who can get convinced to literally cut his own balls off by some hoe is a legitimate douche nozzle in my books -- fuck that! There is not much gore in this one. The special effects are so-so and mostly off screen blood splatter. Some concepts and aspects in it just don't work for me. No doubt some people will enjoy this one, especially those who love the retro feel of it, the off the wall characters and great music. Don't go into Dangerous People expecting a 70's sleaze-fest or a killing spree because you'll be disappointed.
