When his wife and son are brutalized by thugs and a corrupt criminal justice system puts the perpetrators back on the street, a New York City factory worker turns vigilante to find some measure of bloody justice.
Andrew Norris is a new teacher in an inner city high school that is like nothing he has ever seen before. This school is so dangerous that the students have to go through a metal detector at the front door and almost everything is run by a punk posse lead by a delinquent named Peter Stegman. Soon, Norris and Stegman clash and Stegman will stop at nothing to protect his turf and drug dealing business.Written by

The punk kids at the club were actual slam dancers called in for the film. Shooting of the scene got quite out of hand though, as the crowd got rowdy, and some actors and actresses were hurt during filming. See more »

Brutally honest, king of the 80's high school punk scene
King of the 80's high school punk scene. Where is Timothy Van Patten? According to the the site (imdb)he's done some directing but I thought he kicked ass as the gangs leader Stegman, a chilling and mesmerizes performance in my book. While Perry King gave me a good look at a teacher just trying to get through to these disturbed teens while fighting for his life at the same time. Not like Sam Jackson in "187" but still a good teacher. My personal favorite is when Roddy McDowell holds up his biology class at gunpoint after the gang kills his beloved pets. Personally I think this is an important movie.
