A vile low-budget film that couldn't have found a receptive audience even during the height of tough blaxploitation pictures. It tells the story of three escaped convicts who brutalize a black minister and his family. After much bloodshed, the convicts decide to use the minister's house as
a hideout. The cons consist of a deranged white man who forces the minister to call him "Massa," a barbarous Asian and a knife-wielding Chicano. Throughout most of the film, the convicts are allowed to have their way with the innocent family, committing a whole slew of barbaric acts upon them. In
the last part, however, the scene changes as the black family captures the convicts and commits similar atrocities upon their former torturers in a bloody sequence. Some feeble attempts are made to explain the white leader's hatred of blacks in a psychological manner, but it doesn't come off
properly and the meaning is lost.
