During the civil war, injured Yankee soldier, John McBurney is rescued on the verge of death by a teenage girl from a southern boarding school.

As he starts to recover, one by one he charms them and the atmosphere becomes filled with jealousy and deceit.
 

Comments

One of Eastwood's very few "horror" flicks...., 16 November 2001 Author: gridoon .....and it's a good one, too. In fact, this may be one of the best studies of sexual repression ever made. It's extremely well-acted and has some downright chilling moments. An often overlooked film in Clint Eastwood's filmography, and atypical of him, to be sure, but if you're willing to accept him in such an ambiguous role, it's certainly very gripping. (***)
