But I love these guys and they are among the few that actually just doing entertainment, without any deep pretentions or messages. I will forever thank them for this.
But the star is the prison, which makes the whole movie in a different league than many of the other horror movies from this time. It's grey and dark, and the production values is very convincing. Of course the special effects is important, and here we has some really cool stuff. It's never a bloodbath, but it's gory and graphic and has some very nice-looking murder-sequences. I have the dvd from Dragon and that version seems shorter and less bloody, so this is the dvd to buy.
It's Studio S who releases it in Sweden and they have a nice anamorphic widescreen print which is a bit soft sometimes, and has a few scratches, but nothing that's important to mention. It's also a special edition, and except two cheesy music videos from Harlin, there's also a 48 minute interview with the man that's says everthing there's need to say about our finnish hero.
This is the best Prison-horror-movie made, and way better than A Nightmare on Elm Street 4!
