In rural Florida, white trash JD, his wife Rita and their mate John murder a bus driver so they can kidnap five high-school students and demand $250,000 ransom per head. The kids are held captive end constantly threatened by JD and wife in their miserable swamp home in alligator country. The brothers Glenn (a cocky, dumb but popular jock captain) and Bruce (nice and bright) Kirkland and Dexter Martin, neglected son of a penniless Newyorker and the class's boxing-ball, must overcome or at least control their strife to deal with JD's envy-driven abuse. The girls must play in to his adulterous appetite. The ransom is questionable, so a matter of anguish for the parents. Several family secrets play a crucial part in the outcome. Written by
I only rented this movie to see Morgan Fairchild and Joan Van Ark, who turn out to each have about three lines of dialogue in the movie as the kidnapped teens' moms. I don't understand why these well-known women were hired only to be given three lines... Anyway, this is one of the most boring, stupid movies I've seen in a long time. It was absolutely awful. It's confusing because Dennis Hopper and Debi Mazar, who are in lots of other things, are in this trash. Why would they bother with doing such a low-budget movie?
