This movie is beyond weird. I guess this is the reason we watch these old films, they are whack! While I watched this I kept thinking about the mythical city of Mayberry. You have the usual cast of characters, with a few borrowed from the Bevery Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction. We have the down to earth country sheriff, we have Ellie May who spends her time milking goats, we got the town drunk, we got Opie who finds a dead body,and of course we have a broken down old man who is worshiping Satan. I agree with other reviewers who said you want to keep watching... true.
The best thing this movie has going for it is the outrageous, off the farm plot. Its also pretty well directed. The last few scenes deliver a big payoff that even includes some VERY weird symbolism. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I thought the cast was very good. I thought Richard Crane was very good and Ed Nelson seemed perfect for his part although if I'd written this, or anybody had today, the girl would have certainly fallen for the handsome fiend. This movie works almost liked a Twilight Zone episode that was rejected because it was just to freaking bizarre. This would be a cool movie to show at a Halloween party. I watched this after watching another Ed Nelson horror film called Night of the Blood Beast. I never realized he had such a cool horror film resume.
