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.

"About twenty minutes into it, you'll be ready for it to be over. It won't be. It goes on for TWO SOLID HOURS. In order to calm down, you'll need some kind of light romantic comedy to watch, maybe something starring Freddy Krueger."-Joe Bob on SHOCKER

    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.
