Movie Info

This gory gothic horror film marks the final appearance of actress Agnes Moorhead (though one year later, she did provide a voice in the animated film Charlotte's Web) who plays the terminally ill, wheelchair bound Southern matriarch Delilah. She is an unpleasant woman surrounded by desperately avaricious, insane relatives who realize that she has hidden $600,000 somewhere on her property. The greedy family will stop at nothing to get that loot, even if it means chopping each other up with axes.

Fun if you like bad movies but a pity that this had to be Agnes Moorehead's theatrical swan song.

This is certainly a lost classic. I really wish I could get a hold of this on DVD. It probably won't be as good as the first time I saw it because I knew someone that had an old film reel of it, but none the less, I hope it can be made available to me someday.
