Storyline

Simon Lute ekes out a modest living chartering his skiff to tourists and guiding them through the labyrinthine bayou. When a mysterious stranger asks him to take them deep into the swamp, Simon is curious, particularly when the man requests to make part of the journey alone. After the man's corpse is discovered the following day, Simon learns that the stranger had robbed a bank and that hiding the loot in the inhospitable bayou was the man's objective. But what should Simon do with this newfound knowledge? Written by Chris Stone <jstone@bellatlantic.net>

Good movie with an ending that justifies that the "bad guys" always die.
3 June 2002 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

SPOILER!! Good movie. Especially the end where the girl goes under the quicksand, and pays for her cruel misgivings with her very life! Marshall Thompson is chased by bad girl Cora Payne, when she finds herself in quicksand after shooting him several times. She begs for help, then goes under the quicksand. She deserves her reward!
