Search and Destroy is a 1979 Canadian action-thriller film directed by William Fruet and starring Perry King, Don Stroud, and Tisa Farrow.[1][2][3]


Members of a Vietnam veteran's old Army unit start turning up dead in Los Angeles and Niagara Falls. Ex-Colonel Kip Moore (Perry King), is pressed by Upstate New York police for details. Meanwhile, a mysterious killer with a black glove is on the loose.



Really Awful Movies called it..."Great Canadian exploitation fun,"[4] while TV Guide said Search and Destroy was an "empty variation on the "let's win in Vietnam" theme that emerged in the years following the American defeat."[5]
