CGiii Comment

Truly one of the best films ever made...and, the scariest.

Atmospheric, tense, and taut.

A soundtrack that still inspires fear.

A remarkable achievement and a benchmark that few have ever reached.

Do new film-makers simply ignore the classics?

Boorman goes for realism - eschewing casting directors for real people.

This is a non-horror horror movie - brutally believable, the man is the beast, civilised or otherwise.

Minimalism on a grand canvas - a marvel at turning tables.

The(ir) Blurb...

The Cahulawassee River valley in Northern Georgia is one of the last natural pristine areas of the state, which will soon change with the imminent building of a dam on the river, which in turn will flood much of the surrounding land. As such, four Atlanta city slickers - alpha male Lewis Medlock, generally even-keeled Ed Gentry, slightly condescending Bobby Trippe, and wide-eyed Drew Ballinger - decide to take a multi-day canoe trip on the river, with only Lewis and Ed having experience in outdoor life. They know going in that the area is ethno-culturally homogeneous and isolated, but don't understand the full extent of such until they arrive and see what they believe is the result of generations of inbreeding. Their relatively peaceful trip takes a turn for the worse when half way through they encounter a couple of hillbilly moonshiners.
