Plot – Spoilers:
A small-time gang of drug-dealing thugs are rattled when Richard, a soldier returns to town and insists on sticking himself in their faces, over and over again. Their discomfort stems from having tormented his somewhat-retarded younger brother, a while back. When the seriousness of Richard’s bloodthirst dawns on the gang, they wonder if all their posturing is enough to handle a single, extremely driven, maniac.
Richard’s Revenge – Massive Spoilers:
Right at the end, when Richard refers to Anthony as an embarrassing spastic, he was probably speaking the truth. Maybe that’s why he packed up and left for the Army. And his self-hating guilt was turned towards the perpetrators in an attempt to deflect blame.
