Michael Tuchner (1991)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Joanna Kerns, Barry Bostwick and Rob Lowe's brother Chad star in this tale, based on a true story, about a married couple who are held captive by a pair of rather nasty escaped prisoners. Unfortunately, this has all been done before and better in William Wyler's 1955 film The Desperate Hours (with Humphrey Bogart), and overdone in the latter film's awful 1990 remake with Mickey Rourke. Occasionally disturbing, and eminently missable.
