Movie Info

Noble Willingham stars as Ace Barker, a duplicitous redneck whose ugly past starts to catch up with him in The Corndog Man. Ace is a boat salesman, and one of the best in his part of South Carolina. One day, he gets a phone call from someone who claims to be in the market for a boat, but before long it's obvious that this caller isn't interested in a day on the water and actually harbors ill will against Ace. It seems that despite his salesman's exterior, Barker is a vicious coward with a racist streak, and he turned his back on a black friend who needed help while in the Army. Barker's new stalker isn't about to let him forget this -- and he also knows about a few of Barker's more recent sexual indiscretions. Ace's nemesis is played by Jim Holmes, who also co-wrote the script with Andrew Shea (who also directed) and David Steen.more

Audience Reviews for The Corndog Man

A one-man show for main actor portraying a bigot boat-salesman from Boogerville, who spends much of the film yelling at a mystery man, who continues to harass him over the phone, claiming to be his son. What comes around goes around. One of the few films that can highly entertain or highly annoy me, given my mood.

Not recommended for everyone, but still worth the price of a rental to see the look on the videostore clerk's face when you ask for this title.

Awesome thriller with several twists. If you can get past the incessant phone ringing then this is truly enjoyable. This helps however to show the stress factor not to mention the content of the calls. A definite must see for those who love a good thriller.

David Durham

A stirring examination of racism in small-town South Carolina in the 1990s with the ingenious device of a... oh screw that. I made my friends watch this and pretended that it was good just to toture them. Not as good as I pretended, not as bad as they claimed.
