I've heard of it, but have never seen it. Sounds like you recommend it though. If you had to compare it to something (more) mainstream, what would it be?

Can´t really compare it to any other movie
but it´s very atmospheric horror flick with some cool death scenes/special effects.

Finally watched this special edition.
Damn it´s a fine movie!
Great characters and a magical 80s feeling.

The interview is a good bonus, Renny is a nice guy giving some inside info.

The film looks a little like Wes Craven's 'Shocker', is it?

You sound like a fan - what's the score? What's it about?

In the 80s there were these horror movies full of electricity, thunder and lightning.

Shocker was indeed one of them, but it´s more tongue in cheek, horror comedy flick.
Prison is much more serious but don´t get me wrong, i love Shocker too .

Here´s the plot summary from IMDb (yeah, i´m lazy):

When Charles Forsyth was sent to the electric chair for a crime he didn't commit, he forever haunts the prison where it occured.
Flash forward several years the prison is reopened, under the control of it's new Warden Eaton Sharpe. A former security guard who framed Charlie.
When prisoners are ordered to break down the wall to the electric chair, they unknowingly release the angry spirit of Charles Forsyth,
a powerful being suffering from a murderous rage, all leading up to the Warden himself.
