A notorious killer is back to terrorize Los Angeles, and only one man can stop him. Martial arts superstar Chuck Norris (An Eye For An Eye) packs a powerful punch in this exciting action-thriller about a tough L.A. cop's pursuit of a savage villain from his past. Adroitly directed by William Tannen (Flashpoint) with startling images and harrowing action scenes, Hero and the Terror is edge-of-your-seat suspense from beginning to end. Homicide detective Danny O'Brien (Norris) is known simply as "Hero" for having brought down L.A.'s most vicious serial killer: Simon Moon (Jack O'Halloran, Farewell My Lovely) a.k.a. "The Terror." But for years, O'Brien has secretly been haunted by the fact that his capture of Moon was a fluke. When The Terror escapes from jail and returns to his old killing ways, O'Brien finally gets the chance to earn his glorified reputation... if his monstrous enemy doesn't destroy him first! The wonderful supporting cast includes Steve James (Avenging Force), Brynn Thayer (TV's One Life to Live), Ron O'Neal (Super Fly) and Billy Drago (The Untouchables).
