The Animal Factory


Set in an American prison, the film takes a look at some of the harsh realities -- and bonding -- of convict life. A young drug pusher gets ''adopted'' by the leader of the whites, who sees him as a younger version of himself, and tries to keep him out of trouble. There is a continual threat of rape, racial tension and inter-clique violence. The inmates dispense their own justice, violently.
We regret the lack of picture and foreign ratings, the film does not appear to have been released overseas yet.

Ian Douglas: Quite a good ''scare the **** out of them'' movie for persuading people that it's better not to do things which could land you in jail...
