Spotlight on William Lustig: Vigilante
A Halloween double feature from the dirty fingernails of one of horror’s finest practitioners: director William Lustig. For his 1983 film, Vigilante, Lustig cast Robert Forster as his working class hero, Eddie, whose life is ruined when his wife and young son are killed—he blames himself because he didn’t join an underground vigilante group put together by a friend (Fred Williamson). Like Maniac, Vigilante doesn’t let its protagonist off the hook but instead shows that once violence infects someone’s life, he can never be healed morally.
