Definitely Worth Watching
9 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie years ago on a cable channel; I wish I could find the VCR/DVD. It's a story about a bunch of good ole boys who take off in search of a local Indian who is accused of raping a white man's daughter. Nothing stands in their way; everyone is armed. Their objective: To "bring back some bunch of red a**es across their tailgates," and they don't care if they have to kill every Indian around in order to find the one they want.

Kevin Hagen does a good job playing the outraged father who is hiding a secret, and R.G. Armstrong plays the gun shop owner who is coerced into supplying the mob with free guns and ammo while they try to hunt down accused rapist Camper John Allen.
