Four Dangerous Inmates (Jack Palance, Martin Laudau, Erland Van Lidth & Philip Clark) escapes from a Mental Institution, thanks from a Unexpected Black-Out. They Terrorize a Psychiatrist (Dwight Schultz) and his family.
This Shocking Thriller is Written and Directed by Jack Sholder, From a Story by Sholder, Robert Shaye (The Film`s Producer) and Micheal Harrpster. Oscar-Winners:Jack Palance and Martin Laudau stars in this Well Made Horror-Thriller does have a Few Surprises but It`s falls Flat in the Last-Half Hour. The Plot is Good, should`ve been More Complex (Suffers from being Too-Simple Minded), the Movie is now Forgotten but Still enjoyable for Horror Fans. Donald Pleasence has a Supporting Role as a Odd Psychiatrist from the Film. This film is not for all tastes. Watch for Brent Jennings (Witness, The Serpent in the Rainbow) in a Small Role and Watch also for Lin Shaye (There`s Something about Mary) in a very Brief Scene.Grade:B+.
