Unable to escape, her situation becomes desperate when the emergency alarm attracts a swarm of terrifying intruders -- a drunken derelict (Jeff Corey) and his boozy prostitute friend (Ann Sothern), as well as a trio of young delinquents (Caan, Rafael Campos, Jennifer Billingsley) who embark on an orgy of wanton vandalism and sadistic brutality that culminates in murder." * * * * (four stars) ... a superb shocker ..."--Video Movie Guide
