10 Coolest Fictional Prisons

Face Off Movie Prison

Seen In: Face/Off (1997)

It should come as no surprise that the original pitch for Face/Off had the events set in the near future, considering that a perfect surgical face-swap is still... fairly complicated. But while the film may have been swapped to the present-day, the unique nature of the film's Erewhon Prison - an anagram of 'nowhere,' and based on the title of Samuel Butler's novel satirizing Victorian England - is still something straight out of sci-fi.

For starters, it's set on an offshore drilling platform (get used to hearing that) where inmates are forced to wear magnetic boots that can lock them to the floor in the event of an emergency - or an extended interrogation scene/villainous monologue. The invention is actually fairly ingenious, with the added bonus of using the boots worn by the Goombas in Super Mario Bros. (1993).
