10.19.08Internet Gearing up for Halloween, I wanted to watch a scary movie that I hadn't seen for a while and remember actually affecting me. I remember Deliverance being one of the few movies that I approached after hearing all of the famous bits about it and still enjoying it as if seeing it cold. Plus I went on a road trip through the carolinas and Tennessee not too long after seeing this and that... had an effect on my mood. Kudzu can be pretty creepy, man.

Anyway, This was still good although not as powerful as the first time. I love how random and casual the infamous encounter was; how the mountain men were not mutated gigantic Wrong Turn monsters but just poor rednecks in their environment. It's also helped out a lot by the quality of the four leads. You really believe these guys are out there.

Cool times. I still think it's great. The cinematography is spectacular and it's exemplary of those early 70s slow build movies that seem to be polar opposite to today's seizure pacing.
