''Summer of Sam'' is a 1999 film directed by Creator/SpikeLee. Its subject matter is NewYorkCity during the summer of [[TheSeventies 1977]], at which time there was tremendous heatwave, a major blackout, and of course a serial killer keeping the whole city on edge.

Lee's film mainly focuses on a group of friends in The Bronx who get swept up in fear and paranoia as the police continue to hunt for Son of Sam aka The 44. Caliber Killer, a psycho who shoots young couples as they sit parked in their cars. Their paranoia is heavily fueled by drugs, constant news coverage of the killer, and the arrival of their old friend Richie (Creator/AdrienBrody), who is now involved in the emerging punk rock scene which they are completely unfamiliar and uncomfortable with.
