Hangfire ★★ 1991 (R)

When a New Mexican prison is evacuated thanks to a nasty chemical explosion, several prisoners decide it's time for a furlough, and they elect the local sheriff's wife as a traveling companion. Another mediocre actioner from director Maris, it gets an extra bone for stunts kids shouldn't try at home. 91m/C VHS . Brad Davis, Yaphet Kotto, Lee DeBroux, Jan-Michael Vincent, George Kennedy, Kim Delaney, James Tolkan, Lou Ferrigno, Lyle Alzado, Collin Bernsen; D: Peter Maris; W: Brian D. Jeffries; C: Mark Morris.
