      Audience Member Rachel Foster (Linda Haynes) is a country singer making her way through the United States who gets caught in the clutches​ of bar owner Mat Tibbs (Aldo Ray, paging Bill Van Ryn). As she hurries to escape, she wrecks her car and walks into a murder scene that she gets blamed for by Tibbs' brother, the town's sherriff (Jackie Coogan). If this was any other decade than the 70s, this would be the story of her escape. But nope, the 70s were nothing if not relentlessly downbeat. And scummy. Which is kind of what you expect when a movie ends up being a section 2 video nasty. Geoffrey Lewis excels at playing Dr. Kline, the villain of all the many villains in this film. Director Gregory Goodell moved on to make TV movies after this which makes perfect sense. Sadly, Haynes quit acting and didn't resurface until Quentin Tarantino started looking for her. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member After a gripping and suspenseful opening, I was pulled into the story and pleasantly surprised at how much I cared about the main protagonists' plight. Linda Haynes gives us a believable and sympathetic performance. There's actually very little reason why this film needed to be banned. Granted, the majority of the film takes place in a prison, so there is some nudity and a few gruesome bits but nothing too extreme. (Although, the insects crawling all over Linda is quite horrific, particularly the giant spiders and scorpions.) By the third act the film turns into a TV version of A Clockwork Orange. Not too shabby. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Den här har nog ett för gott rykte, egentligen en vanlig tv-film, titeln är bra och lovar mycket men det blir bara trist och lÃ¥ngtrÃ¥kigt.
