A Texas frame-maker is terrified that the ex-convict father of the man he shot during a burglary will extract revenge on his family. This noirish and sometimes brutal thriller starts out looking like a CAPE FEAR rehash but takes a surprising turn.

*Excellent performances by Don Johnson, Michael C. Hall, and especially grizzled old Sam Shephard.
*This probably  would have been a minor classic if they script had bothered to resolve a couple of questionable plot points. I can't explain it without using spoilers, but it's left up to the audience to make up a motivation for a major event that drives the plot.
*There is a very disturbing event in this movie that is not shown in graphic detail but is still very shocking.
*It starts slow, turns into a mystery, then ends as a bloody revenge thriller. Worth seeing.

"...written by Joseph Stefano, the guy who wrote 'Psycho,' only this time instead of being about a guy having trouble accepting the death of his Mama, it's a girl having trouble accepting the death of her Daddy. It happened 14 years ago, when she was seven, and ever since then she's wanted to stab men to death with a screwdriver whenever they try to get too close to her. Of course, I've encountered this 'killer screwdriver syndrome' with several women during my lifetime..."-Joe Bob on BLACKOUT

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
