Movie Info

This violent exploitation film begins when Geoff Farrell (Kerwin Mathews) avenges the rape of his daughter. He takes the law into his own hands -- along with an oxyacetylene torch used to torture the perpetrator to death. Geoff lands in an insane asylum with a life sentence for the barbaric barbecue. Geoff's wife talks her daughter's boyfriend into helping Geoff escape. Aided by the guard, the prisoner disappears. A dead body turns up in a car truck, but it has been burned beyond recognition. Soon the boyfriend sees the light of the oxyacetylene torch wielded by the fanatical father.
