Having been a part of the Blaxploitation movie era, This is one of the few movies produced at that time that was a thriller, mystery and who done it. With a African American cast without portraying the young people as drug-runners, dealers or Junkies. It also portrayed them having have a positive relationship with law enforcement officers. I am starting a movement for an updated/remake of this movie. As a film editor and graphic artist I produced an updated poster as a basis for a remake of this movie topped with the soundtrack from Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra...It is truly one of my favorites. Although the cast was completed with virtually unknown actors at the time. Although very dark. It was still very well acted out
