What is Jeff Fahey doing in this film?
I noticed there was another Fahey listed in the end credit so maybe that could be a reason why he took a supporting role in a low-budget New York action film directed by the notorious Joe Gage (well known for male adult film in the 70's, aka ex-actor Tim Kincade). Because Fahey was in Bigger roles at the time, and this is pretty low-budget for a rising star to do.
Fahey plays a cop in a 4 appearence cameo in a basic plot about a small time criminal (played by a stuntman turned actor) who runs a 24 hours movie theatres in 42nd street, who got out of prison after killing a man by accident. He is going to re-open the theatre's basement that is a gambling casino nightclub (with a terrible comedian name Ajax), and his old rival wants the place closed down. Lots of social message of Grindhouse getting closed down, and about how the neighborhood. Lots of graphic violence, and even a return of "black Dragon" Van Clief is a supporting role. Frances Raines is wasted in a nothing role. Some real treat is to see the street the way it use to be, and a catch title theme. Kincade making a successful transition doing the Fred halsted film to video films like the JOE GAGE TAPE to directing non-adult film could've been the next Abel Ferrera. Recommended.
