Vigilante in 35mm

Vigilante in 35mm
The Grindhouse Film Festival presents a rare 35mm print of this 1983 powerful revenge classic!

Robert Forster stars as a New York everyman, with a small family and a blue-collar job. When his family is violently attacked by street punks, he is shocked to find the police and court system useless and corrupt. His co-worker (Fred Williamson) is fed up with the gangs and drug dealers who have taken over the city, and starts a vigilante group to take care of what the police are too terrified to do. Forster is hesitant to join until he's pushed over the edge, but soon finds that it's a razor thin line between vigilante and criminal. Directed by William Lustig (MANIAC) in a style heavily influenced by '70s Italian crime films and spaghetti westerns.
