Nightmarish chase-thriller in which a graduate student becomes entangled in a plot involving a murderous Nazi fugitive.

Courtesy of his brother, Hoffman becomes involved with Olivier, an old crazed Nazi seeking jewels taken from concentration camp victims. Non-stop action throughout, including a torture scene sure to set your teeth on edge. Goldman adapted the screenplay from his novel.
