| a blast for fans of Italian genre fans
Next to DEMONS this is probably director Lamberto Bava's best film. Having just been released from prison for a crime he didn't commit, leading man Michael Sopkiw just wants peace and quiet in the wilderness. But wouldn't you know it, as soon as he pulls into the town trouble arises in the forms of lowlifes with manners and tact all but absent. They give Michael static and while he tries not to fight back you just know that something is going to make him snap and get even with these small town hooligans and their sadistic ways.(Check out Michael's super tricked out futuristic(?) rifle. This is just a very entertaining film to watch, especially with friends. The soundtrack is amazing as well containing a driving instrumental and a warbles country & western tune.

Critic Reviews



Did You Know?

Trivia

The film was originally going to be a science fiction film, which was a remake of "Mad Max" and it was going to be "Mad Max in the Woods". But, the idea was scrapped due to film difficulties and budgetary concerns.


Quotes

Jake 'Tiger' Sharp: YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO I AM? I'M A SON OF A BITCH... who wants to be left alone.


Goofs

Tires don't squeal "JUST" because of braking. Tires also squeal from a loss of grip on a paved road. So the above mentioned goof is only a partial goof, especially since tires squealing on dirt or gravel roads is one of the most overdone "goofs" of movies & TV shows made during this period.


Crazy Credits

Footage contained in this film which depicts animals suffering was archive documentary footage and was not instigated by the production company.


Alternate Versions

Italian DVD release (which is full uncut but with Italian audio and subtitles ONLY!) has quite a few more intense and violent scenes than the Finnish videotape (English audio) that possibly are not censorship cuts but version differences. The rape scene and the beating of the cop in the woods is more intense. Also the "exploding arm" - and "the throatcut" - scenes are not present in the Finnish videotape. There's also some differences in some of the dialogue scenes, like the ending - in the Italian print Eastman and Sopkiw don't say anything to each other while in the english language print they change a few words.
