Title: Southern Comfort
Starring: Keith Carradine, Powers Booth
It’s The Land Of Hospitality, Unless You Don’t Belong.
From the director of The Long Riders comes this eye-widening, gut-wrenching tale of backwoods terror that “draws you into the eerily beautiful Louisiana bayou… then has you running for your life” (Pauline Kael, New Yorker). Keith Carradine, Power Boothe and Peter Coyote lead a “first-rate ensemble” (Newsweek) in this “exciting, arresting and tautly told suspenser” (Variety)
When nine National Guardsmen enter the Louisiana swamp for routine training, they are unaware that just a handful of their ranks will make it out alive. Through an error in judgment, they incite an all-out war with some angry Cajuns who know the territory like the backs of their hands. Armed with a precious few bullets, and confused by the dimly lit, moss-covered maze into which they’ve stumbled, the innocent guardsmen know they’ll be picked off one by one, until they come up with a solution using the only resources they have left… themselves.
