Storyline

In this drama, David Rosen and his wife Becky have lived in the same Coney Island neighborhood for nearly all their married life. But the area is not what it used to be, and a gang leader named Strut has decided to make Coney Island his new turf. Strut begins shaking down the merchants in the area, demanding payment for "protection" and using violence to deal with anyone who gets in his way. David refuses to give Strut protection money for the restaurant he owns, and as a result his diner is soon firebombed, while many of his neighbors are attacked and his synagogue is desecrated.

forgotten thriller.
22 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Saw this on cable back in 81. And it was about an old couple who live in a bad neighborhood and are being picked on by a youth gang. It was rated PG, but had some pretty disrupting scenes. The ending was definitely a shock. As far as i know this has never been on video or at least i never seen it anywhere. IF you can find it check it out. Iam sure it looks pretty dated now.. Its a movie that will stick with . I haven't seen it since 1981 and still remember all the stuff that happened in it..Iam sure a lot of the people in it are gone now. It shows how bad neighborhoods in new york were back in the late 70's.. It reminded me of another movie that came out in 80 called defiance
