A little slice of psycho-thrills in the sunny countryside
21 May 1999 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

A little seen, very low budget Canadian film from the mid-seventies, before the explosion of tax shelter deals when a film of this type would pop up in a local theater for a couple of days then vanish into oblivion.

Honestly, it's not that bad, and after viewing it again recently for the first time in more than a decade I found it to be strangely entertaining.

Dominic Hogan is wonderfully sleazy as a twitchy, scheming business failure dressed in pure 70's bad fashion. He realizes his lovely wife is cheating on him, and during a weekend drive in the country a heated argument ends when their car plummets off the road into a ravine. Both are injured; she seriously; instead of playing hero and husband Hogan sees a fat insurance settlement and leaves her to die. The wrench in his plans arrives as Dan Hennessey, a driver passing by on the remote road who stops to help.

He'll live to regret this gesture, as a cat and mouse game begins between the husband, intent on covering his tracks at all costs, and the good samaritan, who finds himself bloodied, bewildered, and looking increasingly guilty of manslaughter. The story culminates at a farmhouse where the husband has sought refuge; before the film ends characters will die, and it won't necessarily be whom you expect.

What I liked in particular about this film was that the director doesn't care to offer happy endings or false heroics. The idea of a situation spinning rapidly out of control in a lovely, remote locale where help is not readily available is a good framework to build a suspenseful story. "Sudden Fury" may look low budget, but catch it in the right frame of mind and you just may find yourselves enjoying a little something out of the ordinary.
