Trivia

Crazy Credits: Actor Miguel Ferrer's name is misspelled "Miguell" in the opening credits. See more »

Goofs

Rip Torn's character Sheriff Well's shows Kristofferson's character Logan a picture of Wells and someone purportedly Logan's father, suggesting they came up in their careers about the same time. Rip Torn was born in 1931 and Kristofferson was born in 1936, so they are only 5 years apart. See more »

The Most Under Rated Movie I've Ever Seen!
20 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Prior to stumbling on this thriller, the movie Southern Comfort was the most under rated GREAT movie I had ever seen.

This movie surpassed that! To put it mildly,this movie is awesome! It's fast paced, it's believable, and it's got a GREAT ending that you'll never figure out. All of the actors do a superb and believable job in their respective parts and this ninety - four (94) minute thriller is FANTASTIC!

The IMDb movie rating really surprised me because everyone I have ever turned on to this movie has flipped over it in a manner like I did.

Regardless, it's a GREAT movie that I believe will become a classic years from now.
