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.

The versions released in India (English original and Hindi dubbed) are relatively shorter in duration as compared to the original. See more »
An embarrassing attempted 'remake' of a great piece of film making, by a cast and crew who evidently have no idea what the original was all about.
Peckinpah's original raised questions - you left the theater feeling awkward, self-conscious, asking the same question the lead character was asking himself - 'how do I find my way home now?' This pseudo-remake leaves you wondering, "Is it over yet? Why did I waste money on this? Won't this be show up on DVD soon?"
Because that's all it is, a poorly made routine B movie - part domestic melodrama, part crime shocker, aimed at the DVD market.
Wholly forgettable, with blasé cinematography, second rate photography - utterly forgetful.
See the original - a strange, uncomfortable and difficult but insightful film that holds its own after 4 decades.
