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

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 »
seems to be very realistic, in fact sometimes it's hard to watch the movie, because it's full of violence (opens up with a huge group of men raping a woman, then another rape and a castration of a black boy) nevertheless, i think the director wanted to use the brutality to draw realistic picture of racism. a trash-movie anyway
