Meagerly funded and pretty trashy tale involving a dirt-poor backwoods couple coming unanticipatedly into a substantial amount of cash. They subsequently take their three kids to the state fair, where the two elder children(a boy and girl in their teens with an implied incestuous relationship)are corrupted by some shifty carnival folks. The girl is coerced into sex with a daredevil motorcycle rider(in front of an audience), and the boy becomes prey to a busty gold-digging stage dancer.
A sub-par and highly forgettable film which might be just quirky enough to interest a few fans of obscure basement cinema. Brief nudity and soft sex scenes may be missing from some prints.
Mercedes McCambridge, appearing rather uneasy here, gets a nomination for the coveted Carradine Award. I imagine she was hard-up for fifty bucks when she signed on for this one. 4/10
