* out of 4.

Horrible film with poor gore effects about an escaped convict who catches a tour ride to Alcatraz in search of some hidden money. However, a person in a group of teens spots out the criminal for who he really is. Soon they begin to drop like flies. A slow pace, an inadequate cast, and a dumb ending sink whatever chances it had.

Rated R; Graphic Violence and Profanity.
