Juvie from hell.
A teenager, Brad (P.J Boudousque) is sent to a strict juvenile reform facility run by an ex marine. Col. Frank Reichert (James C. Burns) He soon realizes that not only is this place intense, but the power hungry staff make some seriously questionable choices when it comes to the treatment of the residents.
The schtick of a troubled youth going to an awful reform school has been done plenty of times. Still, it never stops being interesting. I think there's a lot of good treatment programs out there, but I don't for one second think places like this don't exist.
This film is very bleak, and at times reminded me of The King of Devil's Island, but that's not a bad thing. Boudousque shows a lot of promise in this performance. I found this to be an intensely interesting study on the choices Brad had to make once he found himself in this situation. Just when you think things can't get worse, they do.
