The sordid story of a South Bronx apartment building ruled by a gang of crazed, junkie punks. After witnessing the miscreants shooting up heroin and munching on rats, apartment resident Hector gets fed up and calls the cops on the band of basement squatter low-lifes. The police haul them in but justice, unsurprisingly, does not prevail. Immediately upon their release, the gang returns with only one thing on their drug-damaged minds- revenge! Their plan is simple- a hostile takeover of the tenement. With their unique brand of terrorism, torture and slaughter, they plot to pay back every tenant, one floor at a time.
Long before Marvel's blockbuster Wonder Woman, Roberta Findlay was making badass movies and shattering the glass celing in the horror, erotic and action genres! Also known as Slaughter in the South Bronx, this notorious urban shocker was slapped with an 'X' rating for its graphic depictions of violence!
