Released in 1987, PRISON revolves around a death row inmate named Charlie Forsythe (Mortensen) who was sent to the electric chair for a heinous murder he did not commit. Ethan Sharpe (Smith), a prison guard who attended the execution, was aware of Forsythe’s innocence but kept it to himself. Years later, after the condemned prison is reopened by the state, Forsythe’s enraged spirit is awakened and begins slaughtering inmates and guards with the intention of getting his ultimate revenge against Sharpe.
