After thirty years at the mercy of a brutal warden in Sing Sing prison, Ricky is released and returns to the old garage in New York City. Desperate for a place to belong, he falls in with a dangerous sociopath named The Poet and his bloodthirsty girlfriend, Muriel. But the memories of Ricky's old friend Alex continue to haunt him.
- Giovanni Lombardo Radice returns to reprise his role as "Ricky."
- Director Ruggero Deodato also helmed Cannibal Holocaust.
- The first film was the subject of controversy in the UK when it was initially rejected for a cinema certificate by the BBFC when first submitted in 1981. The film later found itself on the DPP list of "video nasties" when it was revealed that the uncut version was readily available on UK video. When it was eventually passed by the BBFC in 2002, it was cut by 11 minutes and 43 seconds, with almost all of the rape and violence either replaced or removed entirely. To this day, the film remains cut in the UK.
- A sequel to the 1980 film, which was also directed by Ruggero Deodato and starred David Hess.
