One of the most bizarre films I have ever seen!!

Ever since I was 4 years old I have been watching movies and I have seen some pretty weird stuff, but this just might take the cake.

Paul Smith is Slue, a very cruel man whose wife Pearl (David Carradine) finds a baby in a car that a friend has stolen. Both demented people raise the child to be an animal that is trained to steal and kill.

When a grown Sonny Boy escapes he finds the entire town is out to kill him.

There are some truly bizarre moments in this film. Sonny Boy is both a sympathetic and hated character and yet he seems entirely sane compared to those around him.

David Carradine has the strangest role I have ever seen him in as Pearl, the wife of Slue. It just boggles my mind, and Carradine plays it as straight as an arrow. Brad Dourif and Sydney Lassick are both in top form here. Dourif plays Weasel and that is a very apt description of his character.

If you haven;t seen this film you are missing a true modern original. I won't give too much away here, but this film has to be seen to be believed.

It has a VERY short theatrical run back in the late 80's and then disappeared. Thanks to Shout Factory it can be enjoyed again. The Blu-ray is excellent and I cannot recommend it enough.
