| Good political thriller is worth trying
I'm trying to figure out what this film is doing in a DVD collection called Tales of Voodoo where its paired with a movie called Scorpion Thunderbolt (which is about a killer snake-man) since the two films have nothing in common and this film has nothing to do with voodoo. I've tried to work out the connection, but I'm not sure I'll ever figure it out. I'm just glad it happened since I would not have run across this very good tale of a political prisoner on the run. Jason Miller stars as the prisoner who manages to escape from a prison work detail when an accident on the road gives him a chance to flee. He is pursued and is recaptured, but circumstance again gives him an opportunity for freedom, which he takes, only he still finds himself being chased by one of the dogs. Far from as simple or as simple minded as I've made it out to be this is a good thriller/allegory. Things don't always go the way you expect (especially if you're like me and were expecting a schlocky exploitation film). This is a movie thats both entertaining and enlightening. Certainly worth trying f you're in the mood for something other than typical exploitation fare.
