Description by OLDIES.com:
This exciting DVD collection presents two suspenseful films that are guaranteed to capture your undying attention until the final credits. Escape From Death Row
features the icy-veined Lee Van Cleef, who finds a way to stay cool even with his life moments away from execution. Absolution
is an intense thriller set at a Catholic boarding school, starring the masterful Richard Burton as the tightly wound headmaster.
Absolution (1978): The setting for this fabulous thriller is a Catholic boarding school where Father Goddard (Richard Burton) rules with a stern and militaristic manner that does not bode well with some members of the student body. Two students concoct a mischievous plan to confess horrible sins to Father Goddard, knowing the results will drive him mad with fury. As these pranks become heinous crimes, the students are in for a lot more than after-school detention!
Escape From Death Row (1973): Lee Van Cleef plays a criminal mastermind being held behind locked doors, inside impenetrable walls in a high-security prison, serving time on death row. Where most hardened criminals would be resolved to their uncompromising fate in this situation, Van Cleef is just beginning to plan his escape. And even more, he is looking to make those responsible for his imprisonment pay for their foolish mistake. With time ticking away, every second can mean the difference between life and death row!
