Audience Reviews for Escape from Death Row


This is a Italian Mafia/Crime Flix. Filmed in Italy and France. My Copy came from the 10 Movie Crime Wave from Brentwood Home Video, It is a very bad copy, the flim had many cuts and scratches in it, it even went black audi for a few minutes, and what was funny that when it cam back an actor was saying can you hear me now. Lee Van Cleef was main actor, imagine he took a break from his Spagetti Westerns. Also Barabra Moore was it there and so was a very young Tony Lo Bianco. Its a good Grindhouse Classic. As long as you get more then one get it if not pass it up.
