THE CHAIR – Storyline
Richard Sullivan is an innocent man struggling to escape his fate on death row. Witnessing the savage killings of his fellow inmates at the hands of the prison’s sadistic and psychotic Warden and his crew of guards, Sullivan decides that the only way to survive is to fight back.
With the body count rising, the Warden and his guards close in on Sullivan. As he matches the brutality occurring in the prison, Sullivan starts to lose his grip on reality. Memories of the childhood abuse he suffered at the hands of his mother combine with vivid hallucinations which push him to the very edge, forcing him to question his sanity at every turn.
