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 »
A group of thugs (one white, one Asian, one Hispanic) takes over the humble home of a kindly black preacher and his family and terrorizes them. Kind of like a cross between THE DESPERATE HOURS and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT.
This is a very politically incorrect time capsule from the '70s, with a lot of racial insults and stereotypes, some of which are humorous in spite of themselves (the forced gun-dancing scene was a favorite). But what's interesting to me is that the "holy" victimized family, once they turn the table on their attackers, proves to be quite capable with the racial slurs themselves... not that they're unjustified by that point, of course! There is also a gruesome murder of a young boy, and the taunting of a little toddler with a gun pointed at its head. Quite unusual stuff, even for an exploitation film. ** out of ****
