Vernonia is just another quiet and quaint American town, smack in the middle of heartland U.S.A. But Vernonia's innocence is shattered one day when two crazed gunmen from the city ride into town looking for trouble. They find it as they terrorize Vernonia's kind folks, pillage the town, and murder the police chief for an encore. The urban scum think they've made a clean getaway, but soon find themselves on the run from an entire community that's armed, angry, and out for blood. The murderers now become the marked prey as the massive mob ensnares them in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. Leaving a trail of bodies in their wake, the desperate men finally storm a farmhouse and take a young girl hostage--which pushes the people of Vernonia right over the edge. Never has revenge been so ultimate... Written by Charles MacDonald

ACTION ADVENTURE will never be the same...
25 May 2010 | by guestar57See all my reviews

Starring:David Jackson and Greg Nutt. A Ray Etheridge classic ACTION flick. When Drive-Ins still ruled and VHS was a threat to TV,This film would have been the talk of the South ! Filmed in Oregon ?,With Real Bullets,Real car crashes and real dynamite…Who could ever imagine happening on film ? Ray Etheridge is a different kind of filmmaker,We're not saying this film effort is the reason Ray and Migdalia moved to Florida,But think someone must have died filming at end. Seriously one of the best endings this side of 'Night Of The Living Dead' shock finis. The bad guy,David Jackson,is still making movies. Greg Nutt,The helicopter pilot( YOU KNEW it had a helicopter),Flew on Magnum,P.I. and NCIS and JAG series ! Again,The Etheridges deliver entertainment.
