A spooky dramatization of actual events, but in the end it feels like a docudrama more than a horror film.

Uses simple period detail and underpopulated settings to convey an anti-Mayberry notion of the South as a place haunted by unsolved, unavenged murder -- an idea that ties this fact-based tale to the genuine horror of the region's civil rights murders.

Plainly dated and a bit slow, but there are also some solid chills and it makes a respectable attempt at historical accuracy.

The true story is so fascinating that it overcomes most of the film-making flaws.

Most students of horror cinema will slap themselves awake solely for the murder scenes, which generally don't reward one's attention.

Leaves us with such striking moments of stark, raw terror, that it puts many less serious horror films to shame.
