Did You Know?
The concept of convicts wearing explosive collars around their necks, which will explode if they get one hundred yards outside the prison, or separate from their "Wedlock" partner, was recycled from The Running Man
(1987), in which Ben Richards (Arnold Schwarzenegger
) and other convicts wore explosive collars around their necks, which would explode if they tried to escape, and if the perimeter was not deactivated. See more
