Exploitation director Herschell Gordon Lewis ("Something Weird"/"2000 Maniacs"/"Blood Feast") keeps the indie gory with an axe murder by the psycho killer sheriff, who is angered when Della resists his sexual advances. Charles Glore (alias Chuck Smith) is the writer and stars as the searching country singer Doug Martin.
Everything about the film stinks. But it's fun, and there's an appreciative audience for such schlock.
