Deadlock (1991)

Nomination Year: 1998
SYNOPSIS:  In a revolutionary new prison of the future, there are no bars or walls. Instead, inmates are "wedded" to each other by means of explosive, radio-sensitive collars. If they stray more than 100 feet from their "mate," their heads blow off. The catch? Nobody knows who their mate is, so escape is impossible (don't ask me why they didn't just make it so the collars activate outside a certain perimeter). A man and a woman "accidentally" escape during an insurrection and must stay close to one another even as they evade the law.
