Is this the prison movie with electrified floors?


I remember seeing a b-movie a while back where the prison electrified all the floors to minimize chance of escape in time for lights out, and in the scene, the other prisoner bunking with the new guy told him to get on the bed, and he didn't and ended up shocked and collapsed. I'm not sure if it was this movie, but from the descriptions so far it seems to be.. any help from somebody who saw it recently?

I just saw it tonight and there's no electric floors. Sorry. Face/Off had a scene sort of like that I think.

reply

Yeah this is the movie your talking about. I think he means the intestinantions.

No, thanks anyway but I saw this movie a few weeks ago and it wasn't the one.. it isn't the intestinations, it actually is a floor that electrifies after "lights out" so that anybody trying to escape the prison can't even walk on the floor at night without getting electrocuted. Can't seem to find it, though.

Don't know... This movie had intestinations...
When the guy was dreaming (after lights out), he was intestinatored... looks similar to being electrocuted...

Let the board know if you find the movie ;)
I'm curious to know which film it is now!

Face/Off has a scene with magnetized floors, and all the inmates are wearing metal shoes. It really is a pretty crappy movie, but I still like it!

reply

yeah, i'm thinking face/off

You're probably thinking of an episode called "The Sentence" from The Outer Limits. David Hyde Pierce is in it and that episode pretty much stole the whole idea of the futuristic prison with red and yellow lines from Fortress. I'm pretty sure your scene was from this episode.

What's that?
Duct tape. I need it for... taping something.
