"This is an unjustly overlooked thriller starring Malcolm McDowell as a matured, more covertly homicidal version of his "Clockwork Orange" character.
The movie might have gotten a little lost in among the general pack of Canadian-made thrillers marketed in the U.S. One Canadian official ruefully remarked that such thrillers seem to have become Canada's major export. These films are often loosely cobbled together plots with one notable actor thrown into a starring role to lend the project respectability. But in this case, a more thoughtful thriller emerged.
The action is presumably set in a U.S. town named "Revelstoke." But again, the U.S. was made the presumptive setting just to appeal to the American market. The movie was actually filmed on location in Revelstoke, British Columbia. The place still carries many reminders of its history as a gold rush town. Its main street is lined with saloons that almost seem to be entered through wooden swinging doors that are approached along wooden plank sidewalks. Soaking in the atmosphere of this chilly, bygone section of town is worth the price of the movie alone.
The sense of being in this close-knit community, isolated among snowy mountain jags, creates an immediate delicious uneasiness. If one of your long-time trusted neighbors should go a little mad in this icy enclave, you wouldn't suspect it until it was too late."
Excellent movie, Fast shipping!

"This movie was very bizarre and at first you can't help but wonder "where is this going?" -- keep watching! Very well done. Crazies at their best!"
