Brace yourself for one of the 1970s greatest, creepiest, cult classics. It s a surreal psycho-thriller that broke all the rules of political correctness and lowbrow film-making as it spun the sordid tale of a black singer from the big city, Liz Wetherly, who finds herself stranded in a backwoods redneck nightmare that makes Deliverance look like a day at Disneyland in comparison.

When her car breaks down, Whetherly ends up stuck in a remote southern town that s been left for dead ever since they put in the interstate. She is forced to stay in a dilapidated inn that serves as the bizzaro kingdom of faded, overweight burlesque star Bertha, her much younger boy-toy and aspiring Elvis wannabe, Eddie, and a cast of suitably strange townsfolk including Sheriff Orville, Keno and Floyd.
