“I’m gonna kidnap a kidnapper for the money he kidnapped for.”

Ever lie in bed at night and wonder if an old movie exists where Lon Chaney takes a blowtorch to Charles Bronson’s face? Well it does and it’s the 1955 prison drama Big House U.S.A., a gritty but forgotten crime tale about a desperate group of loathsome men played by an amazing cast of manly B-movie bad guys. Chaney and Bronson act alongside Broderick Crawford, Ralph Meeker, and William Talman. They’re all villains who meet cruel but deserved ends in Big House U.S.A., one of the most mean-spirited prison escape/kidnap caper thriller ever made (and I mean that as a good thing). I saw it on TV when I was very young and its vicious violence stayed with me for decades until I was finally able to see it again thanks »
