Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

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.

Combustible Celluloid

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.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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

Chuck O'Leary
Fantastica Daily

A sexually-charged Southern Gothic masterpiece that's monumentally underappreciated. One of Eastwood's and Siegel's best films.

| Original Score: 5/5

Movie Eye

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
