Summary: primitive revenge-for-rape shocker

The best way to describe this is "crude" the whole thing is crude from the acting to the at times out of focus camerawork. A group of teens go camping in the boon-docks someplace, and one of them is raped by a bunch of hicks called the "disco boys" who also kill her brother. The father takes revenge when the authorities are unable to do anything against them. The rape scene is very graphic (surprisingly so) especially for a movie of the period, the actors (including Kent Cheng) are convincing (the guy who plays Snake is scary!) but the whole thing is neither sleazy enough or entertaining enough.
