review by
Mike Haberfelner


Doug Martin (Chuck Scott) is a NYC based folk singer who at the peak of his career decides to travel the countryside to reconnect with simple country folks who are of course the core audience of his music ... but he proves to be rather out of tune, as he's soon jumped and robbed by hick Raf (Ben Moore) - but thanks to that he soon gets in touch with Raf's family, the Carpenters, owners of the biggest distillery of the area, led by benign partiarch Jeb (Jeffrey Allen), and they soon make sweet music together. Plus, Doug soon falls for Jeb's daughter Laura (Bonnie Hinson), and vice versa, much to the dismay of Doug's spoiled NY girlfriend Della (Marilyn Walters), who after unsuccessfully trying to get Doug to accompany her back to NYC gets quite briendly with local Sheriff Asa (Adam Sorg) ... and is never seen again ... and here's where the main plot sets in: You see, Asa is a real bad guy, and he and his deputy, lame-brained Luther (Harry Hoffman) have already killed three feds who have come to investigate them, and Asa isn't shy to rape Laura's sister (Gretchen Eisner) even, just ... well, just because. But eventually Asa finds himself cornered by Doug and the Carpenters for that - and that's when he really proves how much of a calculating villain he is ...

 

Ok, from a narrative point of view, this is by no means the best movie there is (or even one of Herschell Gordon Lewis' better ones), it's basically a showcase for its star and score composer Chuck Scott, who also wrote the piece, and it's a bit lacking in narrative structure (like when the main plot only sets in halfway through the movie) and is by no means clear of clichés and the like - but that said, if you decide to watch the movie as a naive piece of yesteryear's drive-in fare with what must have back then been risqué material (like an implied rape), can laugh at some not all that refined, misfiring humour, and are not put off by the rather straight-as-an-arrow and mediocre folk score, you'll very probably be well entertained by this one!
