Viewing Notes

Gordon Liu encounters a woman, the only survivor of a brutal mass murder. So he seeks to find those responsible.

Data in IMDb is incorrect and is actually referencing another movie: Exposed to Danger (1984), which I believe the title that includes all the actors they list. Not exactly sure how this happened but I know that the reviews listed for Breakout from Oppression at IMDb reference the Mill Creek set that lists the incorrect title for the actual film on the set.

Not sure how to correct right now.
