Scum (1979)

R 08/20/1980 (US) CrimeDrama 1h 38m

The film they tried to ban! A brutal story of today.

Overview

This is the hard and shocking story of life in a British Borstal for young offenders. The brutal regime made no attempt to reform or improve the inmates and actively encouraged a power struggle between the 'tough' new inmate and the 'old hands'. This film is a re-make, by the same director and writer, of a 1977 BBC teleplay banned before broadcast [see Scum (1991)].
