Much of the film was shot on location at a working prison facility, and the cast and crew had to sign waivers affirming that they would not be rescued if the prisoners took them hostage. At one point, a prison official gave several cast members safety vests to wear for protection, but promptly told the horrified cast members he wasn't sure it would help in case of a riot because "they usually go after your eyes anyway."

If technology ever produces a prison where inmates are held in line by golfball size explosives/electro-shock units imbedded in their intestines, it may look something like this...(how the poo gets around the device is never discussed ; ) )
In my opinion, it is more fun than any other Christophe(r) Lambert film when appreciated with the correct level of expectations. If I had paid $7.50 to see a movie like this at theater, I'd be a bit let down, but having split a two dollar rental fee amongst friends, I was more than happy to watch, in fact I believe I watched it twice that first time I rented it. Then it began to grow on me. I would definitely go see this at a film show now, but this movie is an acquired taste, to be sure. I've had to show this to a lot of people over the years and have recently acquired the latest DVD version, and I am waiting to get the out of print Sony issue in widescreen soon! But of course, I have never spent more than ten bucks in my life towards this film, renting and owning included, if you find it for five bucks, buy it.
Highlander fans, Kurtwood Smith Fans, Battlestar Galactica Fans, all should take a look at this Camp Classic.
