A young American and his English wife come to rural England and face increasingly vicious local harassment.
The photo in the main movie poster may come from the iconic Odessa Steps sequence in the silent film Battleship Potemkin (1925).
John Niles; come to me then.
John Niles: Is this for a drink then, Tom?
Tom Hedden: This is for the truth. Your brother; been hangin' around the girls again. You'd better keep a closer watch or we'll be puttin' him away!
The men open the mantrap for display then ask where to put it. They are asked to hang it above the fireplace. The guns which were hanging there whilst they opened the trap have, in the meantime, disappeared.
The video version was twice rejected by the British Board of Film Classification in 1999 after the distributors refused to cut forcible stripping and any signs that Susan George was "enjoying" the rape. Video versions were available in Britain before the 1984 law which required all videos to be classified. There were two such releases, one of which was uncut, and one which lost some dialogue due to print damage. As of 1st July 2002, the full version of the film has been passed uncut for video and DVD release by the BBFC.
