SYNOPSIS:  This movie represents the triumph of banjos over optimism.

Four diamond thieves need to lay low for a while, so they force themselves into the house of a country bumpkin with a sexy young wife. Hijinx do not ensue, but horrible acting does. If we take “acting” to be synonymous with “hollering in a vexatious manner.”

No one is killed with a scythe, or by hanging. There is a farm, but it is in no way a “death farm.” Nor is there a massacre. Demented only serves to describe the people who made this film.

Smithee Award Winner! Worst Cover Copy

Front cover: That woman, that man, not in the movie. Those clothes? Not in the movie. No one is killed with a scythe. Or by hanging. There are no goats, chickens, cows, barn, silo, tractor, fields. No big gnarled tree, although the house is in the woods (not out on the plains). Back cover: Tag line is cheesy. And inaccurate. The whole country bumpkin through dimwitted husband thing is wrong. Tagline #2 is also cheesy. And inaccurate. But there are diamond thieves from the city driving a Jeep.

Acting Appropriately Stupid

"I never seen a gun like that before. Can I see it?"

Worst Acting

Hooker Berates Moonshiner
Black Madame talks trash (badly) to moonshiner.
