Ghosts... of the Civil Dead

Directed by John Hillcoat
Australia, 1988
Crime, Drama

Synopsis

The inmates and guards of a modern, clean and efficient maximum security wing are slowly and increasingly brutalised until they erupt in violence. Dark and macabre, and based in truth, the story is told in a traditional dramatic style combined with telephone interviews and narration.
