A small southern town has just been rocked by a tragedy: a young woman has been violently raped. The white town fathers immediately declare that the attacker had to be black, and place the blame on Garth, a young black man. Assuming that the men in white sheets aren't intent on holding a fair and impartial trial, Garth takes to the woods as the Klansmen lynching party hunts him down.Written by

As Cutt gets up after Breck swings him over a pile of suitcases during the fight, a mattress can be seen behind these suitcases, obviously put there for Cutt to land on. See more »
Hey, what are you trying to do?
Kick some asses, baby.
What's the point of busting up a peaceful meeting?
What good's a peaceful meeting? It's for them bourgeois negros. When you gonna learn anyway that all that marching gonna get you is what you got. Screwed.
And don't you know you gotta keep violence out of the movement?
You know, if I was a honky I'd want niggers to all be just like you. Do nothings. Always marching them dumb-ass marches and mouthing them dumb-ass slogans.

The original UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC to edit the rape and castration scenes. All 15-rated UK DVD releases feature the heavily edited US TV version which completely removes these sequences as well as extensively cutting bad language and most of the violence. See more »
What was director Young (Dr. No) thinking of taking on this project?! This is every bit as bad as I've heard. To begin with, there's the script, certainly among the worst ever written. Then there's the acting, very stereotypical of its day, except with the stars, Marvin and Burton, who clearly have no idea what they are doing here and don't really care. Then there's the anachronisms - the script belongs to the '60s, it's 5 years out of date. Then of course the morality - while the Klan is rightly to be condemned, can a black murderer be justified? Can he just be asked to leave the county as the sheriff does here? Ridiculous. And then there's the "action" climax - confusing and improbable.
Was Young high when he did this? I can't think of any other excuse.
Bad when not just awful.
