Goofs

Henry has a good and clear chance of escaping from Bobby in one scene and doesn't make any attempts to do it. Charlene warns Bobby about the guy carrying a huge sum of money to which Bobby plans to rob him in the bathroom. He says to Charlene to stay in the car and ready to move while he and Henry will follow the man to the restroom. There, Bobby enters into a huge fight with the money guy while Henry just keeps watching in panic. Bobby's attention goes to the other guy, Henry could have left the place and run away with Charlene cause there was nothing holding him there except his shocked state. See more »

Well done
11 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Most b-movies feature gratuitous nudity featuring surgically-enhanced bimbos. You watch them once and forget about them. While "Poison's" plot was somewhat predictable, the characters were believable and the story did a great job of developing erotic tension between Bauer and Patricia Healy.

Bauer was what I'd expect a prison inmate to be like - mean and streetwise, but with some morals and not thoroughly bad. Healy, while attractive, was not some 20-year-old ingenue and was convincing as a amoral gold-digger. She didn't have that many nude scenes but they were well-placed and highly effective. Ed Herrmann was good as a man faced with life/death for the first time. When he finally has to fight he does so in the clumsy, bumbling manner that you would expect, he isn't suddenly transformed into Bruce Lee.

Like the 50s and early 60s b-movies, but with enough sex and violence to make it interesting without being excessive. Good movie!
