I’ve always been of the opinion that Stuart Gordon’s futuristic prison flick Fortress doesn’t get enough love. Not a perfect movie by any means, but one I’ll be more than happy to add to my Blu-ray collection and hope you will too, lest I be forced to activate the Intestinator.
Stuart Gordon followed-up Re-Animator, From Beyond, Dolls, and Robot Jox by stepping into Paul Verhoeven territory with this violent 1992 sci-fi thriller starring Highlander Christopher Lambert and Loryn Locklin as a husband and (pregnant) wife arrested for violating the population control policies of the dystopian future; their punishment being a life sentence in a corporate-controlled, state-of-the-art, supermax prison.
Robocop villain and “That 70’s Show” dad Kurtwood Smith plays the authoritarian prison warden who takes an unhealthy obsession on Lambert’s wife. Mohawked Road Warrior bad guy Vernon Wells and Re-Animator himself, Jeffrey Combs, co-star as fellow inmates. »
