    it was a movie about a classroom who were taken hostage by a few men weraing rubber masks and one was known as father christmas. They end up ina cave and set up so they kill their attackers. i believ they were all english. i could have sworn it was called fortress but I am not sure. Could someone help me. It used to be on HBO all the time in the 80's. Also is it on dvd? Thank you for your help!!

    They were Australian, but otherwise you have the name of the made for TV (in the US, at least) movie right. It starred Rachel Ward. IMDB Listing is here. It's not on DVD, but you can order it on VHS.

    Sounds like an HBO "original" movie starring Rachel Ward ("original" in quotes because HBO didn't produce it but it first aired on cable). It was indeed called Fortress. IMDb doesn't indicate a DVD release, and I don't remember seeing one.

    This movie sound vaguely familiar... Was there some kind of lake in the cave they were in, and they found they could escape the cave by swimming through an underwater tunnel to the outside?
