Our posse arrives at Desiree's swamp home, but she isn't there. Unfortunately for Desiree's beautiful and pure sister, Julie (Janit Baldwin), and mute little brother, they are home. The posse then gang rapes Julie and put a shotgun barrel...well...I am not going to say where they stuck it, but Julie is killed when the trigger is pulled. Desiree makes up her mind that she will hunt the men down and exact swamp justice on them. The posse returns and believe they are chasing Desiree. They soon figure out that Desiree is luring them deeper into this swamp to inflict slow tortuous deaths upon them. With snakes, 'gators, booby-traps, and bullets, Desiree picks them off one at a time.
Will Desiree be able to finish her vendetta before the Bracken family turns the tables on her? Will the Cajun-Redneck community ever shake the harmful stereotypes perpetuated by this film? This movie is gritty and serious, with much uncomfortable imagery. One may try to find deeper meaning in this film by portraying Desiree as a metaphor for the swamp.....endangered. Which ever way this film is looked at, it's influence in future revenge flicks can be easily detected, including both "I Spit on Your Grave" films.
