Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Brian Katkin, the director behind such video-store fare as If I Die Before I Wake and Hard as Nails, delivers this action thriller starring Ron Perlman and Erika Eleniak. Released straight-to-video in 2002, Shakedown centers on a terroristic religious cult, led by Perlman, with plans to infecting the world with a deadly biological weapon. After an earthquake, Perlman finds himself trapped in an office building with the weapon he covets and an undercover agent (Wolf Larson) bent on stopping him. Hunter's Fred Dryer co-stars.
