The film centers on several psychotic murderers who escape a mental institution and go on a killing spree in Los Angeles.
TV Guide awarded the film a negative one out of five stars, noting the film’s low budget while admitting that the film was entertaining. Joseph A. Ziemba from The Bleeding Skull gave the film a positive review, writing, “Equally intense, humorous, and shocking, The Thrill Killers does the impossible. While radiating innocent charm through its use of bongos and small scale sets, the film pulls off a feat which very few horror films from this era can still accomplish: it’s unsettling.” On his website Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings, Dave Sindelar gave the film a mixed review. While commending Steckler for his performance and direction of the film’s attack scenes, Sindelar stated that the film was undercut by a weak story lack of convincing characters and overall campiness.
