In a small Chicago suburban town, a police chief and his son get caught up in a nasty experiment that programmes teen-agers into killers. Auckland's Remuera district is standing in as the "small American town", and Auckland's Avondale College as the "friendly Galesburg College". You will probably spot One Tree Hill, when it still had a tree. Not a great film - either scriptwise or technically, but worth a watch for those who enjoy the genre and it is enjoyable observing the dress styles, old cars and dance styles of the 1970's. This US/NZ co-production was the first NZ "thriller" feature film.
