Before Red gets out of the country, hes going to get even, one sweating, sadistic murder at a time. In this gripping, relentlessly paced B-movie, film noir great McGraw who breathed menace even when he played a cop or a detective dominates the screen with a presence so ice-cold cruel not even the pitiless Mojave sun could melt it. Jittery with fear and suspense, The Threat is the kind of little-known gem every film fan rejoicesin discovering. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
