The electric chair (which was never used in Wyoming) was built into the actual gas chamber of the Wyoming Prison and the death scenes were filmed there. The original chair, was carefully removed and an electric chair was built in its place. During the shooting, Viggo Mortensen's convulsions were so violent the arms of the chair were broken and needed to be repaired. See more »
I thought bustin' cars was your thing.
Well a car ain't nothing but a series of locks. Older the lock, easier it is. And this place... is old.

Caught this film in about 1990 on video by chance and without knowing what i was in for. Many horror fans may have missed this thinking it was a typical prison film and the ones who did get it didn't like it as it was not what they wanted to see. The above mentioned factors are probably the reasons it is low rated but just ignore that and give it a whirl if you're a fan of the genre.
It has strong suits in all departments from script and atmosphere to acting and the prison itself.
An absolute diamond, a film i still have on video to this day. Check it out.
