Has it occurred to you that nobody has told us what this centennial is all about? Now, this is 1965, and a hundred years ago it was 1865, right? So, what happened in 1865?
It was the ending of Civil War. The war between states!
Well then you tell me why would a southern town want northerners as guests of honor at the centennial. It must has something to do with what happened a hundred years ago. So, something is very wrong with this town.

The 1986 UK video was cut by 4m 27s. The cuts list was as follows:
[26 mins] Reduce to absolute minimum the severing of Bea's finger and chopping off of her arm, removing the sight of finger being cut off and most of the scene that follows, reducing in particular the sadistic glee of the townsfolk at the pain and terror they are inflicting.
[45 mins] Reduce tearing apart of John by horses, in particular the cackling and gloating of the crowd, the smiling women as he dies, and the shot of the dismembered arm.
[52 mins] Remove shot of nails coming through barrel from victim's point of view inside, with laughing face peering in. Also reduce to minimum sight of bloody body at bottom of hill.
[60 mins] Reduce length of scene in which Beverley is tied under stone, in particular removing the last close shot of her struggling body as boy kneels by her, and reducing other shots of bound girl struggling to minimum.
I saw this movie while in the Army. It was part of a blood triple header at a drive-in while stationed in Virginia. Blood Feast, 2000 Maniacs and another movie I forgot the name were on the bill. I can still remember the ways the characters were killed and all the themes from a State Fair that were used. But my favorite was when they cut the girls thumb off and then they fixed it by chopping her arm off. Then later that night by the campfire while they cooked the arm. They sang "I'm rolling my sweet baby's arm." How can you not like this movie it is almost like a must before seeing Kill Bill part 2. Just my opinion.
