review by
Mike Haberfelner

Somewhere deep in the middle of nowhere, rural Tennessee: When Paw (Victor Hollingsworth) and his teenaged son Caleb (William Ryan Watson) find young Sylvia (Jackie Kelly), all bloodied up, by the roadside, they don't ask too many questions and give her abode at their farm to nurse her back to health. Since she has no place to go, they ask her to stay and help out with farmwork, which he happily agrees to. Caleb finds Sylvia very alluring, and it turns out she's not at all adverse to his advances, and they soon enough start to screw. Behind Caleb's back, Sylvia soon seduces Paw as well, and when Caleb finds out, he just figures it's the nature of things. One day, Reverend Simms (Wynn Reichert) stops by to pick up Sylvia, who's still underage, and return her to the orphanage she's run from, but Paw has the idea that Sylvia ought to sleep with him as well, on a weekly basis, just to keep him at bay. Caleb protests, but Sylvia is surprisingly ok with it. And truth to be told, all three men soon take a liking to the arrangement, after all, they're all satisfied, sexually, and Sylvia doesn't complain at all. Of course, there are signs that everything's not quite as ok as it seems, from mysteriously dying lifestock to brute Ronnie (Jason Christ) stopping by with the intention to kill Sylvia, to the Reverend's wife (Christine Poythress) claiming Sylvia's of the Devil, but the three men are thinking with their dicks, so they just try to keep a good thing going - and then she tells them she's pregnant, and of course has no idea which of them's the father - but of course, one of them has to marry her to keep up appearances. And here's where things go to hell ...


A very nice piece of horror that blends catholic and rural folklore, bits of erotica and even comedy with a general undercurrent of unease, all brought to life in the farmlands of Tennessee, with an atmospheric directorial effort making most of the locations bringing the feel (and heat) of the area really across and making it palpable for the viewer. And thanks to a clever narrative build-up the audience is left guessing till the end. And of course, a very solid cast doesn't hurt one bit, either.

Worth a look for sure.
