 This is probably one of the best things I've seen in a while.  While it's basically a rape/revenge flick I think it's the starring cast which take this one to a higher level for me.  You get Leslie Uggams as a black singer(which she was in real life) whose car breaks down in some craphole southern town.  So right away we get that hicksploitation/DELIVERANCE feeling.  Luckily? she gets some help from Lurch from THE ADDAMS FAMILY(Ted Cassidy) who tows her back to a service station/bar run by Shelley Winters who also happens to have a young pretty lover named Eddie.  Eddie is a singer also and a wannabe Elvis-type who doesn't mind getting a little rapey with the ladies now and then.  If all this isn't enough to entice you to seek this one out an extra-sleazy Slim Pickens shows up as a pervy sheriff and you get a townful of wacko morons that reminded me a bit of the cast of 2000 MANIACS.  A true exploitation classic that's not often enough brought up and where else are you gonna get to see Lurch as a brooding hillbilly?
