Sandor's dog-faced, gun happy pappy
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

For the life of me I can't understand why I haven't heard of this righteous heft of down home drive in shunt-kickery before. Where were the so called arbiters of bad taste in order to fast track me to this double- barreled hootenany. While the plot bares little scrutiny; big lug (Steve Sandor) returns to his family ranch from the killing fields of 'Nam with a nasty case of the battle crazies, and his fragile psyche is about to take another clusterf#ck; as a group of reprobate carnies, led by the towering Prophet (Rockne Tarkington) began an ill considered sortie on the Sandor homstead only to find themselves repelled by Sandor's dog- faced, gun happy pappy. And it this most meagre umbilicus from whence the film's fragile narrative is born.
