A South Bronx gang rape and kill the residents of an isolated tenement. The tables turn and the surviving residents viciously despatch the gang. There is a gruesome scene depicting the repeated stabbing of the leader with a TV aerial followed by a lightning strike for good measure.Written by

This was a very violent & grungy & gritty & grimy 80s gang film but it was an interesting watch to see who would survive the night & how they would be killed off.The apartment is a big old tenement building that is grimy & run down & these small group of ordinary all very different characters have to basically just survive the night as their building is attacked by a viscous psychotic street gang & it's crazy & very bloody.Acting is ok sometimes good & sometimes ridiculous but hey IT'S a low budget 80s film so just what i expected, i really wanted PAUL KERSEY (Bronson) from the excellent DEATH WISH FRANCHISE to turn up & just shoot the gang & save the day but hey that was my fantasy lol but yeah this was a good film but some choices the tenants make are so STUPID they deserve to die!!! Not too bad but not up there with the likes of the similar DEATH WISH 3 (1985) & ENEMY TERRITORY (1987) both BRILLIANT!!! Still this little grindhouse Thriller is a good watch even is some scenes are too sick!!! The urban decay south bronx setting really has a gritty scary atmosphere & this film uses all that in the hopelessness & we're on our own SURVIVAL instinct & IT'S great fun
