rated for 0 + years
A stifling atmosphere of fear and violence hangs over this film. The 21-year-old Elvis has never met his father. He discovers that he is living as a vicar in Texas and sets off to meet him. However, when the illegitimate son realises he doesn’t fit into his father’s new “fairytale” family, his horrific revenge takes on biblical proportions. In the tradition of “Psycho” and “Blue Velvet”.
