VIRUS 407 


Zale Dalen's 1990 film Terminal City Ricochet--one of the most asked-about Jello Biafra-related projects--is finally seeing the light of day! Never available on VHS and rarely shown outside of Canada, this dystopian vision is as timely as ever.

The action takes place in one of only five livable places left on Earth, where telegenic Mayor Ross Glimore (Peter Breck, The Big Valley, Shock Corridor) is king of all media and rules as a virtual dictator. To maintain his grip on power he must stage an election, and for that he needs fresh fear. Enter Alex Stevens (Mark Bennett), a fed-up, cynical newspaper delivery boy who happens to witness Glimore run over one of his own supporters in his car and leave the scene of the accident.

Glimore and his Rove-wellian henchman Bruce Coddle (Biafra) hatch a plot to brand Stevens "the #1 terrorist threat" (based on his connection to rock 'n' roll music which, along with meat, is banned) to cow Terminal City into submission and steal another tabloid election. Stevens flees underground, where he stumbles into a resistance movement led in part by his newfound friend Beatrice (Lisa Brown) and a fugitive brain-damaged goalie from the Glimore-owned hockey team, and finds himself caught up in a plot to bring Glimore down, with the not-so-secret police (DOA's Joe Keithley and pro-wrestling legend Gene Kiniski) hot on the trail.

The DVD package comes with the soundtrack CD featuring some of Alternative Tentacles' most beloved acts.
