A man wrongly hanged for murder haunts the swamp, killing those responsible for his death and their descendants.
This genuinely eerie horror movie from PRC isn’t perfect; it drags quite a bit in the middle of the movie. Still, you have to admire the amount of atmosphere that this cheaply-made movie generates. The setting has a lot to do with its appeal; the shots of people gliding through the swamp on the ferry are quite memorable. The acting is solid throughout, and once again you see how much care PRC put into its product.
