Destroyer is a 1988 horror/action film starring retired football lineman Lyle Alzado. Alzado plays Ivan Mozer, a serial killer who has been convicted of the rape, torture and murder of 23 people; although, at his execution, he boasts of having killed 24.

Moser is sentenced to death by electrocution,which fails during a power outage caused by a riot (but not before he receives a jolt). It was presumed by the prison staff that Moser had been killed in the riots, however he manages to escape. The prison subsequently is abandoned. Moser had been living within the closed prison's walls with the assistance of his father, who was employed by the state to guard the abandoned prison. 18 months later, a film crew sets their sites on the now closed prison for the filming of an exploitation film titled Death House Dollies. They discover that not only did Moser survive his electrocution due to something in his DNA make up making him a genetic freak. But the electrical energy has made him half-alive (half the man and twice the animal) and thereby has Spontaneous regeneration.






This movie is so fun to watch classic 80's cheesefest and holy shit is Lyle Alzado funny in this, he plays a better maniac role better than I had expected! and to my surprise, there are some pretty good moments as well.

You know, I always passed on this when I worked at the video store...I never knew it was a horror flick...just thought it was a generic action flick...

I learn something every day...

I can see that, especially if one judges it at first glance of the cover art, but it is a Horror flick with Alzaldo playing quite the psychopathic maniac!! axeman
