This minor exploitation oddity pits two curvaceous ex-cons against the inbred populace of a small fishing town -- particularly the title character, whose creepy mother encourages his campaigns of terror against the girls. Though Junior's antics are often quite sadistic -- ranging from pelting one girl with worms to gutting the other's dog -- the filmmakers seem to lack the seedy convictions possessed by the films which clearly inspired them (namely Last House on the Left, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and I Spit On Your Grave), making the heroines' climactic revenge less satisfying. We're almost asked to pity the poor lunkhead, whose actions are dictated by the desires of his mother ... who, by the way, seems to be sporting a serious case of five o'clock shadow!
