Screenwriter David Sumner travels with his wife Amy in his Jaguar to her homeland Blackwater, in the Mississippi. Amy's father has passed away and David intends to write his screenplay about Stalingrad in the house. David hires the contractor Charlie and his team to repair the roof of the Barn. Amy was the sweetheart of Charlie when she lived there and neither him nor his crew show respect to her. Charlie invites David to hunt deers with his group and him but they leave David alone in the woods and rape Amy. She does not tell to David what happened but when the drunken coach Tom Heddon calls Charlie and his friends to hunt down the slow Jeremy Niles that likes his daughter, David decides to protect not only Jeremy, but also Amy and his honor.Written by

After David runs into Jeremy with Amy's car, he was shown standing with his right arm outstretched parallel to the ground with a compound fracture of the upper arm, complete with the upper part of the bone protruding through his skin. A person with this kind of injury would not be able to hold their arm out that way since there would be no structural support from the upper arm; the arm would angle downward from near the point of fracture.

Hey Charlie, there is something in the Bible I do believe.
Whats that, sir.
"Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's wife."
I believe in that, too. But what happens when thy neighbor's wife covets you?

While there are probably people out there who could pull off a remake of the classic Straw Dogs, this isn't the group.
I tried real hard to like this film since I'm a huge fan of Walton Goggins, but this should have been left on the shelf.
The actress playing the wife did a rather good job, though, in a role that is not easy to pull off and achieve a believable balance.
Overall I wouldn't give this more than about 4 or 5 points.
Next time someone tries this I really hope they can give us something worth watching. This is a truly worthwhile script that can be done better, perhaps even better than the original. I'd like to see that.
