Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #88: Prison (1988)

This is a blast to me. Just old school horror with practical effects, Kane Hodder stunts and that white/blue-ish light you only find in 80’s coke commercials.

Whatever happened to Renny Harlin? His motto was; “if you build it up you got to blow it up” and he proved his faithfulness to that statement in this early movie featuring a young up ‘n’ coming Viggo Mortensen.

I have always liked him but never understood his big appeal until I saw THIS movie! He just owns with a “fuck James Dean’s corpse”-grin on his face.
