Berry is an actor whose short stay in jail goes wrong when he is innocently involved in a breakout. One of the guards (Bohringer) gets his knee shot off, and vengefully hounds Berry through a further prison sentence, playing sado-masochistic cat-and-mouse games spiced with a little homophobia. The psychological thriller in which the victim needs the torturer as much as vice versa is familiar territory, but any game which can only reach a sudden death resolution is always good value. Unfortunately, what the film would propose as a happy ending for the hero is in fact the point when his troubles are just beginning. CPea.
