Synopsis by Cavett Binion

This standard, Southern-fried action-thriller stars Michael Sopkiw as an embittered cop just released from prison after serving a lengthy term for killing the man who murdered his wife. Wishing for a peaceful, serene change of pace and a chance to catch up with his daughter, he moves to rural Georgia to live off the land. Alas, this pastoral existence is short-lived, thanks to a sleazy group of poachers who supply an even sleazier scientist with live animals for sadistic biological experiments. This minor effort from Lamberto Bava (son of legendary Italian horror maestro Mario Bava) represents a bit of a tangent from that director's earlier giallo thrillers or gore-drenched horror projects but sticks pretty closely to the basic revenge-driven, blood-and-guts action formula.
