A police raid in Detroit in 1967 results in one of the largest RACE riots in United States history. The story is centred around the Algiers Motel incident, which occurred in Detroit, Michigan on July 25, 1967, during the racially charged 12th Street Riot. It involves the death of three black men and the brutal beatings of nine other people: seven black men and two white women.
The majority of the film and all of the Algiers sequences were shot in chronological order. See more »
In one of the interrogation rooms, there is a grounded outlet. Outlets weren't grounded in 1967. However The N.E.C. first mentions grounding receptacles in 1959. Grounding receptacles were required in new work in the 1968 code. See more »

Saw the movie, lived thru it, box office agrees the movie sucked. It could have played on the Lifetime Network or straight to home video. Boogie Man gonna get you.. As Krauss stated in the movie "You don't talk about this to anyone, ever." And apparently he was correct, as the budget was $34M dollars, and the studio received only a portion of that, we should have been paid to watch this I rest my case
