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.

When submitted to the Swedish censors in April 1981, with a running time of 85 minutes 31 seconds, the film was banned. Eight months later a heavily edited version was submitted, but the film was denied a certificate yet again, despite having suffered 3 minutes worth of cuts, running only 82 minutes 14 seconds.

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 »

This is a pretty nasty piece of work that is nevertheless well made and effective. Race, rape and revenge but much more too when a modest God fearing black family are set upon by three escaped convicts who don't seem to like each other much more than do their captives. Much racist abuse and humiliation, though this all gets reversed as the family regain the upper hand and the 'by the book' cop makes an exception and allows the revenge to run it's course. Vile, exciting, hateful and touching by turns this is a very unusual, though non the more likable piece of exploitation cinema. Absolutely no way this film would be even considered today let alone be made and yet, in its own way it draws attention to that unspeakable prejudice within us all.
