Moody and sultry...
23 December 2006 | by (Toronto, Ont.) – See all my reviews

This unusual little film has a way of staying with you afterwards. Indeed, you will feel compelled to watch it again and again for its plot subtleties and seemingly (deliberately?) inadvertent sexual tension.

Veteran nasty John Carradine doesn't disappoint. The two young lads are realistic, if overly naive, but Tracey Mann is very fetching here and seems to float along the ground as she walks, unaware of her innocent yet animal-like appeal. You can't take your eyes off of her! You almost want to travel downunder to see if you can find someone just like her! Based on the brilliant novel "The Scarecrow" by the late Ronald Hugh Morrieson, there is inevitably much from it that cannot be included in the film--particularly the private thoughts of young Ned Poindexter, Pru's brother.

Savour this treat!
