Southern Gothic that sinks too deep into the bayous of sexploitation and horror towards the end, Don Siegel's adaptation of Thomas P Cullinan's 1966 novel is still ripe and pungent enough to intermittently fascinate.

It's perhaps their most atypical and most psychologically fascinating, showing Eastwood as more of a sexual being than most of his other, iconic films ever did.

Evidently the public didn't like Eastwood in this sleazy role and stayed away in droves.

A sexually-charged Southern Gothic masterpiece that's monumentally underappreciated. One of Eastwood's and Siegel's best films.
| Original Score: 5/5

Provocative and hypnotic...Eastwood revels with spellbinding spunk in this suggestive military melodrama
| Original Score: 4/5

We're used to Eastwood playing a hero, so we accept his casual words and silky delivery without really questioning it
