Brand New 2K Masters! Where Innocence Is a Punishable Crime! Deborah Raffin (Death Wish 3) and Lynne Moody (Scream Blacula Scream) star as two young and attractive college students who become enmeshed in a trap of local prejudice and greed when their car breaks down outside a small, sleepy town. Insulted by the girls’ rejection of his amorous advances, the local sheriff (Chuck Connors, The Big Country) arrests them for trespassing and prostitution. After a mockery of a “trial,” they are sentenced to a womens’ prison farm run by brutal guards and a sex-crazed superintendent. Cut off from contact with friends and family, the girls realize that they are at the mercy of a crooked justice system, designed to supply local farms with cheap prison labor. Their only hope is to escape this nightmare, at the risk of their lives. Nightmare in Badham County exposes the terror and corruption of a vicious tyranny that actually exists in certain communities where “justice” is no more than a charade for greed. The great John Llewellyn Moxey (The Night Stalker) directed this realistic and shocking action-drama. Written by Jo Heims (Play Misty for Me) and co-starring Fionnula Flanagan (Death Dreams), Tina Louise (TV’s Gilligan Island), Robert Reed (TV’s The Brady Bunch), Della Reese (TV’s Touched by an Angel), Lana Wood (Diamonds Are Forever) and Ralph Bellamy (Trading Places).
