Oliver Reed in "Sitting Target"
Oliver Reed in "Sitting Target"

Oliver Reed Week! continues at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Josh Olson introducing "Sitting Target," starring Reed as a crazed convict who breaks prison to kill his unfaithful wife. 

Director Douglas Hickox (Theatre of Blood) worked his way up from assistant director to have a brief run of commercial hits in the mid-70s. This is probably his most nihilistic project, a bleak, violent thriller in the vein of Get Carter and Villain. All we could unearth on this one was a 60 second tv spot.
