This video is mostly taken up by talking about vengeance rather than getting on with the job. A mean trashy exploitation picture about three convicts who escape from jail and hole up at the house of a black minister. There's a few nasty scene's where the ministers family are being repeatedly terrorised by the thugs. In the end the minister turns the tables on the 3 convicts and gives them their just desserts.

The marketing of this film was unique and unusual. For example, there was a theatrical trailer for the film that was geared toward Caucasian audiences, and another theatrical trailer for the film that was geared towards African-American audiences (using the alternate title of the movie, "Stayin' Alive"). Another example would be the teaser trailer, which was just an almost 30-second clip, without music and sound, of a still-photograph from the movie, along with the title and MPAA rating. See more »
The first time we see the Turner family's pet dog on the couch, a wire is seen and a hand to the left of the screen is clearly moving up and down. The wire is attached to the dogs tail and is being used to wag its tail, suggesting the dog is being friendly. See more »

I don't really get how this film is racist. It's got a main protagonist that's a total racist and says a lot of racist things, but then HE'S THE BAD GUY, that's what he does, be bad.
I thought this film was a great thrill ride, it's not high art and I agree with everything said on the audio commentary. The whole point of all the racist abuse and awful violence in the film is there to get people furious at the people doing it so they are right behind the family when they finally get to take their revenge in the end.
The acting is good for the most part although the two fathers in the film are a bit wooden. The out of town cop is as they say on the audio commentary 'acting in another movie' but it just works so well for the character and there is a great pay off at the end for it.
An undiscovered gem that is very misunderstood. I'll be trying to get my friends to watch this. 9/10
