Duped by former army pal Paul Hoplin into building a time-bomb, New York shop owner Jim Molner and his family become hostages of Hoplin who uses bomb-threats to extort money from airlines.
The subway sequence near the end actually was shot at and in the old Hudson & Manhattan Railroad system (now better known as the PATH Trains), operating in Lower Manhattan, lower midtown, and New Jersey, which was in bankruptcy at the time. (Ridership had shrunk to 30 million a year, and one imagines the operators were happy for whatever access fees and publicity the production carried with it). The station or stations used seem to be the Christopher Street station in the far west of Greenwich Village, and possibly the 9th Street station north and east of the former.
During the subway chase you can see the lighting move with the actors.
