Product Description:

In 1972, documentary filmmaker Arnold Shapiro brought 17 juvenile delinquents to a maximum security prison in New Jersey to spend a day with some of the most dangerous and hardened criminals behind bars. These life-sentence inmates gave the wayward teens a shockingly realistic, no-holds-barred account of the brutality of daily prison life, powerfully documented by Shapiro in his Oscar and Emmy-award winning film SCARED STRAIGHT. This DVD revisits the important and influential documentary that altered the course of the participants' lives as well as those of millions of other troubled teens in high schools across the country. Also included is the updated feature SCARED STRAIGHT! 20 YEARS LATER, which examines the lasting effects of the program by following up on the teens and inmates two decades after the experience.
