Unsung little gem
4 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only caught the last half of this on cable yesterday but I was able to figure out quickly what was going on. I didn't intend to watch it, but I couldn't stop! It's a weird little tale filled with pitch black humor (that's probably why it barely got released), some neat twists and turns and the cast giving it their all (especially Anthony Michael Hall and cutie Craig Sheffer). I didn't quite understand the identity of the narrator at the end (I'm assuming it was the girl) but, that aside, it really works. I'm not sure where this was shot but it gives you a real feeling for the Deep South.

A sick, funny little movie. Worth catching.
