Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Back in the USA is a penny-pinching exploitation flick which barely hit the theatres before it was picked up by cable and videocassette. The setting is the Everglades, where three teenagers stumble across a terrorist organization. This is excuse enough for an interminable but fitfully exciting chase through the swamps. Old B-movie hand Bradford Dillman is around to look menacing and spit out his lines through clenched teeth. Chances are Back in the USA would have sunk in the backwater bogs without a trace were it not for its future-saleable cast: Ken Wahl, Judge Reinhold, Annie McEnroe.
