There was an unseen killer, even masked I think, who knocked people off in unusual ways. It was more like an Italian Giallo film than what we think of as a slasher film, but I think that's because the slasher conventions hadn't hardened to the extent that they later would (it was only 1983) and many were still showing the Italian influence. A real film person might offer more insight here, provided I'm not on crack.
I could probably build a stronger case if I were willing to watch the movie again, but that's asking too much even of a guy who spends endless hours writing a website about Parker. :)
