The anonymous reviewer should have their short minded opinion removed because it does not reflect the ratings of the film or the general response to the film over the years. Yes, it is shocking and does deal with the issue of incest, but that alone is not a valid reason to say it is a terrible film. I, along with many others feel that it is one of the most alarming heartfelt and believable portrayals of an incestuous family ever portrayed on film. Wonderfully acted and shot on a low budget it is a triumphant piece of work. Congratulations to Dennis Hopper and his producers for having the guts to produce this brilliant film. William Marsh
