Roddy Piper's last film role. Zach Galligan & Noah Hathaway are virtually unrecognizable. Ezra Buzzington & Kin Shriner were other actors I recognized.

THE CHAIR adheres to it's tag line, 'On Death Row, The Only Monster is Man." It has an interesting idea, & a VERY interesting twist. But the lack of production values hurt my suspension of disbelief.

The Prison was the problem. It looked so little like it should have (just a bunch of tunnels) that I had a hard time investing in the rest of the film. Normally I would be distracted from the sets by the nudity, but there was none. Despite the lack of budget, hey tried hard to make this a serious film.

For film completists, fans of these actors & the curious. Otherwise, there are better ways to waste your time...
