1987's "Enemy Territory" -- Worth Watching

If you enjoyed the book Brooklyn Bounce, you'll love watching the incredibly hard-to-find movie Enemy Territory.
A movie thrown down the memory hole for a reason

It's a movie working overtime to confirm every observation former New York City Cop Joe Poss made about what it was like (as a white person) trying to uphold law and order among a non-white population.

The plot is simple: a white insurance salesman goes to collect a policy (the premium) in a ghetto highrise, almost entirely populated by blacks. These black residents, with rent paid for by the taxpayers of New York City, decide to hunt the "ghost" (white man). 

Here's what the Los Angeles Times wrote about this 1987 movie. [Movie Reviews : 'Enemy Territory' Packs Texture Too, 10-5-1987]:
In a genre--low-budget action--noted for slam-bang, no-nonsense entertainment, "Enemy Territory" (citywide) has a lot, and a lot more, to offer. Apart from an obvious urban thriller framework, there's a smattering of social commentary, literary allegory and old-fashioned moralizing in the story. Surprisingly, it's not gobbledygook. The film works within the confines of its genre and, without straining, slyly introduces textures that are usually reserved for more serious entertainments.
Rather than relying on Pavlovian logic, the underlying motivations for the action are greed, lust, fear and honor. Barry (Gary Frank), an insurance man, enters a tough black New York neighborhood after dark to sign a policy and collect a fat commission.
Will (Ray Parker Jr.), a telephone repairman, is in the same building--a 20-story apartment complex--seeing his new girlfriend on company time.
Black cop: "What the f^&$ you doing here, white man?"
Not hip to borough etiquette, Barry makes a faux pas that can only be termed "life threatening." Searching out the policy holder, he taps a brother's shoulder, to ask if he knows the tenant. Insulted, the young man vows he'll avenge the slight with blood. A few minutes later he returns with other members of his gang, the Vampires.
Fortunately, owing to matters of scripting, Barry eludes death, albeit narrowly. That's when Will instinctively answers his cry for help. Unquestionably, both men would pay dearly to start the whole day over again.
Writers Stuart Kaminsky (author of several books on American action directors) and Bobby Liddell are up to the challenge of realizing a great premise. Through force and cunning their heroes proceed to work their way from the top floor to the basement and presumed freedom. If they can only survive the night, surely the Vampires will lose their fangs in daylight.
Director Peter Manoogian visualizes a harsh and ugly environment to play out the situation of inherent jeopardy. He also demonstrates a facility to keep us on the edge of our seats as peril dogs the two men along every step of their escape route. Although the thriller has echoes of many earlier films from "The Defiant Ones" to "The Warriors," it's John Carpenter's "Assault on Precinct 13," with its emphasis on claustrophobia, that it most closely resembles in both story and craft.
Another great asset of "Enemy Territory" (MPAA rated R, for violence and language) is the clever manner in which it makes social points through character.
Frank is an unsympathetic, failed yuppie whose race prejudice comes from self-developed tunnel vision. Parker (Jan-Michael Vincent), a Vietnam veteran, seeks an embattled environment to fulfill his need for paranoia.
Objectively humorous, the truth of the observations is undeniable too. Also obvious is the talent of the film makers, which shouldn't in any way be diminished by considerations of budget or theme--they deserve unqualified praise.
Well.. there's not much race prejudice in this movie that isn't richly deserved. 

It's not available on DVD, but you can find VHS copies for around $40. However, someone has uploaded it to YouTube.

Watch it here.

And let's talk about it below

Yep, remember when this used to play late night on HBO. "All we want is the ghost and the blood traitor."

Speaking of being a white cop. A white Charlotte NC cop was just indicted for the murder of an unarmed black male who was acting erratically.

Randall Kerrick was responding to a 911 call of a black male trying to break into a home. Once on the scene the black male, an ex football player, charged at Kerrick and ignored repeated warnings to stop. Kerrick shot him 10 times. All of this happened in the wee hours of the morning. Prime black predator hours.

Blacks are raising hell and have already threatened riot if Kerrick is not convicted of murder. NAACP demanding justice and local hand wringers are scared shitless over black threats.

The DWL's and blacks that control the just-us system charged the officer with voluntary manslaughter but the grand jury didn't indict. So they formed another grand jury, composed of blacks no doubt, and this one did.

The Police Chief is black and has sided with the black community and arrested the officer within hours of the incident even though the investigation hadn't even started.

For those full of the Tribe-hate, let me note the late and very missed Stuart Kaminsky is the author of the Abe Lieberman Private Eye series (never read it) and the Toby Peters 1930s-WWII Hollywood Star series (like "Never Cross a Vampire" with guest star Bela Lugosi) showing his love for Old Hollywood and old Hollywood stars. The formula is down on his luck, with weird helpers, Private Eye Toby Peters helps out say, John Wayne or Bette Davis or Salvador Dali with a problem that balloons into something bigger, with the stars always looking good and the readers understanding WHY they were stars.

Kaminsky also wrote the Inspector Rostnikov series, about a Soviet-Yeltsin-Putin era cop trying to do the right thing amidst corruption.

So here's a guy, a very Jewish guy, who co-wrote a movie like it was.

I loved Kaminsky's Peters and Rostnikov stuff, read him since the 1980's. A true great, and sadly missed.

Whiskey said...

You have to wonder, Kaminsky was a guy who wrote over 60 novels, was President of the Mystery Writers of America, had lots of fans among mystery writers (Sara Paretsky dedicated her first novel to him) and could write a mean story.

And WHY was he basically a non-entity in Hollywood, with neither of his three big series ever made into movies or TV shows?

My guess is Enemy Territory made him persona non-grata. And that was a Crystal Methodism religious thing, more than anything else.

After all, the guy was Jewish. A Professor of English. And wrote about Jews in Russia in the Rostnikov series.

No instead we get the usual dreck.

Good suggestion, thanks.

Off topic;
The negro perp in this recent Maryland Mall shooting, is said to have had or wanted a negro sex relationship with the young white woman killed. He be frustrated and sheeit. Remember, the negro Philip Chism who raped, killed and mutilated his white teacher in Massachusetts just recently? Or the negro who raped a nun in in Pittsburg last Dec? Tip of the iceberg of course. There are so many.

They are on a white women rape and killing spree of late. These young negroes are frustrated because their hip hop videos tell them that all white women desperately want them, yet it doesn't work out well for them.

Segregation. Severe apartheid. The only answer, short of a more violent answer.

What a crock of shit! The god damned niggers smell blood. They don't want justice. It was a white cop that killed the nigger. That's all that matters to them.
I've read that somewhere between 7,000 to 11,000 niggers have died, at the hands of other niggers, since Trayvon Martin bought the farm.
Let a white police officer, on duty, in the performance of his duty kill a out of control nigger and all hell breaks loose.
They have no concept of how false their accusations and demands for "justice" sound. Doesn't matter the nigger was killed, it only matters that a white man did it.

Just watched it. The reality of black dysfunction and violence is much worse than any movie could portray. But all in all it was worth a watch, pretty campy but still.

Un-Effing Believable!

From the graffiti to the venality of the "Vampires" this movie encapsulates every attack we have heard about in the last year on White. The White guy struggling to make a commission on his boring job, the unsympathetic police, the useless hatred, the niglets as thieves, vandals (Stripping the insurance guys car even before he is out of sight), as shallow, lying scum; the elderly negros living in a world long gone. Finally the gang members, jumping around like chimpanzees as they beat, burn and terrorize the people in the building. The magic rites. Interesting that this was a time before negros did tattoos and so you get the "big hair" but not the Mexican mix. Mexicans are shown, but are clean cut, mustachioed wearing vaguely western clothes and a denim jacket. They are not a force yet.

The White guy is a "ghost" and the negro trying to get him out is a "blood traitor".

These negros are the creatures that growl as they bite peoples faces off, these are the destroyers of Detroit that people tax themselves and hire Blackwater guards to keep away, the "Zombies" people joke about that are destroying the Western world. Sometimes you get a picture of it (like here: http://youtu.be/XqB2fKbflWw ) but most of the time you are told that the negro worked for a Company and he "lost it" and shot 8 co-workers or a "woman" threw her baby at a police officer as she was getting away and you wonder what kind of person does that because they leave out that it is a negro.

negros are not people.

Their envy and rage is totally out of control, beyond reason and Hope. You wonder why they are looking at you out of the Police lineup photos with stone arrogant faces, eyes slitted, no shame or remorse (indeed, they use Court as another way of Victimizing the family of the victim). They stare out of the police photos and their faces are interchangeable. Dead eyes and hatred. If they can't even raise their own offspring without soaking them in violence and degradation, how would they expect Whites to do so if they live next door?

Finally, we have the White guy. Weak, frightened, college educated (probably Finance and Environmental Studies as there is a reoccurring joke about Volvo cars throughout the movie) out of his element and expected to cough up money all through the movie to advance the story one more notch. Generally a pussy.

Frankly, I am astonished that such a realistic movie got made.

Downloaded last night. Started watching and gave up after just a few minutes. TNB on steroids. Simply couldn't stand to watch.

Worked as an ER doc at old City Hospital in St. Louis in the 1970's. Got my fill of TNB there. I simply could not believe my eyes.

Despite the few outliers, there will ALWAYS be a reversion to mean which we are witnessing today. The only thing maintaining the illusion of black "progress" is the propaganda by the MSM and the entertainment industry, government make work jobs, affirmative action jobs and "successful" black athletes and entertainers.

Without the constant infusion of white capital the blacks would descend quickly into barbarism.

Here's a thought experiment for you: imagine a raging viral infection that killed all those with more than 25% European genes. How long would it take until the utilities no longer functioned? How long until no fuel was available? How long until the bloodletting began? How long until the population of blacks was reduced by 80%?

Answer: in less than 48 hours there would be complete social, economic and industrial breakdown. And, in approximately 12 - 16 weeks the population of Negros would be reduced by 60 - 80 percent.

My awakening was not complete until I truthfully answered the following question: is there ANY deceit, deception, historical distortion or any lie of any nature whatsoever that the left is unwilling to perpetrate to promote their agenda? The answer is there is none.

OT: My local Indiana conservative radio talk show host (white male, 65) with listeners in the 60-dead demographic, is discussing our RINO mayor's decision to AGAIN shut down city government offices because of the cold weather (not snow).

The older callers are telling stories about having to walk to school in the cold in their rural towns as children, of having to bundle up with scarves and long johns and "tough it out", not knowing "what is wrong with these sissy kids today?", "why don't they have warm clothing in Indiana, and "when did we become such pansies and victims?" The talk of having to pack their cars with supplies to make sure they are prepared for the cold snowy weather.

I want to tell them that this is caused by the NEW dumbed-down negrofied society of BRA, how the state GOV employees are precious AA minority single baby momma women, who can't be inconvenienced or expected to prepare a hot meal of oatmeal fo dey poor chillens, or pack cold-weather supplies in their cars, or wear layers of wool sweaters and get their fat, lazy asses to work on time, even during a brief cold snap. They set the standards for all of us now.

If you can take care of yourself and have the nerve to criticize the diverse vibrants, you are a racist and are blaming the victims.

These precious minority victims who work for the state GOV should not have the hardship of trying to find "quality childcare" for dey chillens when a school day is canceled. The entire fambily gets full protection from the government at whitey'e expense.

I wonder if the public schools are operating heating and feeding shelter stations for the fambilies during this cold snap? No whitey would know for sure since he does not use the school system and is tucked away in the corn fields, far from the realities of BRA.

In BRA, Mexican immigrant and negro children do not own coats or hats because of racism and because they are "poor", and can't be expected to stand to wait for a bus if the temperature drops below 60F. You will often see the poor, poor young black males shuffling along in the wind and snow with only white athletic shoes and a fleece hoodie over a long t-shirt.

In BRA, white males in their 60s are beneficiaries of unearned white privilege and "lucky" that they have warm pickup trucks to drive, warm clothing, tough skins that can handle colder weather and larger brains on average.

White values including self-reliance are "unfair" in the multi-racial society of BRA. We just can't expect all of the vibrant peeples of color to live up to the racist high standards of Western society.

These white people will never, ever get it.

In Miami, I've not really thought about this for years. There are so many places you just don't go.

When you grow up with the anti-Black measures in place, you don't think about it. Around my home in Coral Gables, there is a high wrought-iron fence around my house. I have bars on my windows, reinforced door, alarm activated on car inside locked garage.

My hick friend in armed-response security calls his job "Keepin' the Niggers away."

We spend so much, avoid so many areas, leave places when they show up.

It's not cowardice, all Blacks and half the Whites are against you. Any reaction or precaution "too obvious" will bring instant charges of racism.

You can't make any changes when most people freak out over imaginary racism so quickly. That's why most of us just accept that Blacks will always run wild. You just keep your guard up, maintain security and tacitly understand what's going on.

Good movie.
The Vietnam vet in the movie made me think of the old and very sarcastic anti-war photo poster about the war- "This Vacation Visit Beautiful Vietnam!"
Just update that with photo posters of any decrepit, run down, trashy, negro infested area in any city with scuzzy negroes cluttering the streets- "This Vacation Visit Beautiful Detroit!" Or simply insert the name of whatever city desired.
Or have a split image poster. One image of Mogadishu and one image of the hood in your city of choice. Entitle it (for example), "Mogadishu or Detroit? You Guess the Location!" A variation could be "America or Africa? You Decide!"
The movie also reminded me of the opening scene of George Romero's "Dawn of the Dead" where heavily armed cops have surrounded a high rise apartment building and one of the cops says something to the effect of, "Why do we put these niggers up in these fancy high rise hotels? Shit, man! This is better than I got!"
Negroes or zombies. Not much difference really.

I worked in a Brooklyn project neighborhood for ten years starting in early 2001. It's amazing that this film is only slightly over the top it was probably even closer to reality in the late 80's when it was filmed. All the themes and scenery are almost 100% accurate, filthy common areas, heinous treatment of the elderly, extreme disregard of social norms from ages 8-50, rape threats, etc this movie is almost a documentary.

Bogolyubski said...

BTW, Nicholas Stix is one of the tribe also - and another example of the 1-2 percent made to look bad by the other 98-99 percent. Like Kaminsky, has the right background and skill-level to have been one of the New Duranty Times top-tier reporters. Tells the truth about negro criminality and is relegated to our little "dark enlightenment" ghetto for it. Auster also paid heavily career-wise for not bowing entirely before the Cathedral (and for converting to Christianity). Lots of white folks all over the "free" world have paid as much and even more - we hear about them even less.

Exceptions are still exceptions. Statistical majorities are still statistical majorities.

"This Vacation Visit Beautiful Detroit!"

Other night I caught "Back to the Future II," released back in the 1980s. The movie has an opening scene showing an idyllic middle American tree-lined street. Owing to time travel shenanigans, later in the movie the same neighborhood becomes a dystopian wasteland: trashed houses, wrecked cars, gangs, corrupt cops, Big Man rule of the town.

Detroited.

The funny thing is, when the movie was released this came off as science fiction. Today, it's rapidly becoming the norm. And not just in Detroit but many more cities in America, Europa and South Africa. It shows just how far we have descended that our vision of the future has had to be radically changed.

Call it: "BRA to the Future!"

Enemy territory, indeed. It seems the liberalized version of the US is now enemy territory for all people who can identify gross violations of cosmic justice. I was telling my wife that probably the same percent of white people that show kindness or indifference to animals would also show the same emotions to blacks if we just classified them for what they are...lower subspecies of homo sapien sapien. I think most of us resent the daily BS of fictitious black achievement as much as we resent their arrogance, violence and incompetence. Just call them what they are, animals and proceed accordingly. No wasted energy on hate, anger, and utter amazement as the next shakedown is released.
It's now a house of cards and the glue holding it together is squeezed from the tube called 'corruption'.

I too am calling bullshit on that cop's story about shooting Kerrick.

Kerrick was the name of the cop, Ferrell (seriously) was the name of the negro.

I agree that this negro did not deserve this. But at 24, the negro should have been a bit more prudent than to start banging on a white woman's door at 2:30AM and, according to the story I read, "yelling for her to turn her alarm off". Assuming he didn't have a phone, find some other way to get help.

And that's what you'd call a cultural problem in law enforcement.

Police officers are civilians and should be held to the same legal standard as civilians without uniforms and badges. Murderous cops are worse than murderous blacks, imo, as the public has the right to expect more from law enforcement than they expect from feral blacks.

You can get a good grasp of this case from news reports. Mr. Ferrell knocked on a door after midnight. A woman opened the door, slammed it shut again and made a panicked call to the police, assuming Mr. Ferrell was a home invader. A polite one.

The police show up with the preconception they will be dealing with home invaders.

Officer Kerrick was one of several responding officers. According to the police, Ferrell "ran towards them." A lie for sure, imo.

And then the unarmed Ferrell, facing three (I believe) police officers, was shot down in the street before a word was exchanged. Officer Kerrick fired TWELVE shots, ten of them hitting Mr. Ferrell.

So I would say Mr. Ferrell was the victim of the preconceptions created by his criminal brethren, of female weakness and hysteria, and of a law enforcement mindset that allows murderous cops to exercise their itchy trigger fingers with the smallest excuse.

As a career FF for a decade now I can attest to the fact that we in the FD get to the the negro in his true element.

Trashed shrewn rentals, (they don't own) large screen TVs in the living rooms & bedrooms with Cable or Satelitte (I've yet to enter a residence where it wasn't on and blaring). Snack food everywhere, sinks & stovetops full of dirty, unwashed dishes, pots & pans... There is always the dirty couch & easy chairs, stained with food, hair grease & even animal feces.
All occupants are related but never married. All occupants are receiving multiple forms of aid/assistance be it Welfare, SSI Disability, Medicaid/Medicare, Utilities etc. Yet they NEVER pay for services rendered by private Ambulance, Fire/EMS etc.
What I describe here is the tip of the iceberg. It gets must worse & this is 95% of negro residences I get to see.
Anyone who says they are just like us is a lair & worse, an enemy.

Get you house in order because this madness cannot & will not last.

In a way, your second sentence above contradicts the first.

LEOs should be held to a HIGHER standard than citizens (of whatever race) They are supposed to be trained (professionals? experts?) at things like use of force, the law, conflict resolution, etc.

Also... when one citizen shoots another, it is "just" that, one citizen shooting another. When a cop shoots a citizen, he is a state actor, and that means he represents the government. When the government shoots a citizen (even a negro), it has to be scrutinized much more carefully.

Was Ferrell completely stationary? Impossible to know. It seems unlikely to me that Ferrell was running towards a group of policemen. Why would he do that?

It's hard to gauge how many rogue cops are out there. 1%? 10%? I don't know. In my own experience of probably seven or eight encounters with the police over the years, one was with a crazed local cop who drew his weapon and pointed it at me while screaming obscenities - because I got out of my car after my friend, following me, was pulled over in a small town speed trap. There was also the NYC cop who unloaded obscenities on me after I asked him for directions.

I've also heard many stories from a friend who's a retired state trooper. The thing I have the biggest problem with is the good cops protect the bad cops. Or to put it a different way, there's no process for bringing the bad cops to heel until their behavior is so egregious it's no longer possible to ignore it.

So here am I, an upper middle class white male, living in Whitopia, telling my children NEVER call the police on a family member. Not that there's likely to be a need for that but nevertheless, what does that tell you?

Love that this thread has been hijacked by the Charlotte PD shooting. It's timely due to the recent grand jury "do over" resulting in the indictment of former Officer Kerrick regarding the shooting death of former Florida A & M football player Jonathan Ferrell. This story hits home, when a big homie chimps out its scary. If your a white cop, he's going to see you like a bull sees a red cape. And a footsballll player knows how to tackle. Every cop who polices the colored has to deal with this sort of thing. So how did Kerrick do?

He fucked up. Bad. I've read several stories on line and once you cut through the media bias about the dead negroe who is not described as a graduate of Florida A & M, I get the gist. Ferrell crashed his car, had been drinking. Port mortem BAC was below legal limit. No mention of drugs, that will come out later if it's an issue. He pounded on a door and freaked out the older white lady home with her kids. She called cops.

Cops got a call about a possible home invasion. That's a hot call. They get there and find Ferrell who "comes at them" and does not stop when told to. That's not open for debate. It's in all the stories and recorded by the squad dash cam. Also homeboy was unarmed. That's also established fact.

So the cops tried a taser. Didn't work, maybe he charged, chimped out, whatever. Still can't . . . What did someone post about shoving a gun up his ass? Can't use deadly force if homie wants to throw down and is big.

That's key. Police use force based on the legal doctrine of reasonable force. It's based on thousands of court cases and legal decisions. Believe me, you want us limited in what we can do. Without such restrictions your in soviet Russia, or North Korea. Back to dead homie.

He got mad and came at the cops, okay arrest him. If he wants to scrap jump that big motherfucker. Take out legs, knees, shins. Go to ground and bounce his abnormally thick skull off pavement. Ring his bell and cuff him up, then go to jail. Write report. Eat donuts. Mmmmm, donuts.

We get paid to fight the big apes. The small ones don't usually fight. Feel bad for Kerrick but he unloaded on homie when he should have engaged physically.

Still good shooting though, ten hits out of twelve shots. Firing under pressure, if this whole shithouse goes up in flames I want him on my team!

He must have been belligerent because the white woman perceived him as hysterical and violent. So he proved her right.

All you need to prove the officer innocent, so to speak is for the 911 caller to show that the black was behaving badly.

The black is no loss.

This film is a video game waiting to happen.

White pussy hands over cash to various groids. Do Rey slit YT throat or deliver him? It's like looking into the goddamn future.

No drugs or alcohol in Mr. Ferrell's system according to the toxicology report.

It'll be interesting to see what the autopsy says about the relative locations of Mr. Ferrell's body and Officer Kerrick's firearm when the twelve shots were fired. The audio tape of the incident shows four shots, a pause, six shots, a pause, then two shots.

Let's see what the jury thinks about all this. I'd listen to the evidence with an open mind, that's for sure. I guess I've discovered my raycissm does not extend to condoning extrajudicial killing by the po-lice.

Also, regarding the movie. "Fuck off Mau Mau!"

Epic. Well done Jan Michael Vincent. I'm gonna use that one. As good as moon cricket in my estimation.

Hell of a concept Chuck. Extrajudicial killing by formal and informal authority is as old as tyranny. Has no place in our fading Republic. Disturbing possibilities.

The Charlotte cop fucked the pooch on this one. Just curious regarding the whole "do over" grand jury. I don't know North Carolina law, but Illinois has an offense called Reckless Homicide. Unsure if they can nail him for murder. Intent is the issue. I think the guy had no business working as a cop. He was an animal control guy previous. Shoulda stayed there.

You're not a racist Chuck. Just awake. The militarization of police is a sign of larger issues. Loss of individual liberty. National sovereignty. Our founding principles. It's all related.

I'm tired Chuck. Thinking a lot about my exit strategy.

Interesting times. In the Chinese sense.
