"..ANOTHER AWESOME 80'S CLASSIC.."
on 9 October 2016
After Charles Forsyth was sent to the electric chair for a crime he didn't commit, he forever haunts the prison where he was executed. Flash forward several years when the prison is reopened, under the control of its new warden Eaton Sharpe, a former security guard who framed Charlie. When prisoners are ordered to break down the wall to the execution room, they unknowingly release the angry spirit of Charles Forsyth, a powerful being with a murderous rage to kill all...
Yet again another great 80's movie from 88 Films, Directed by Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, A nightmare on elm street 4) This is a great movie from beginning to end with a simple story of revenge in the form of an entity stalking the old prison, the movie has a decent cast with a few faces from other movies such as Viggo Mortensen (Leatherface Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, A History of Violence) Chelsea Field (Masters of the universe, Death Spa) Kane Hodder is also credited for some stunts and a small unrecognisable cameo, the special effects look great budget, some good practical bloody gore effects, this is a long lost gem from back in the day and highly recommended for the 88 Films collection.
