MAUREEN McCORMICK IN TEXAS LIGHTNING

year: 1981 rating: *1/2
Exploitation cinematographer turned director Gary Graver's meandering mess about three rambunctious drunken men who go hunting, one of them, Cameron Mitchell, bringing his passive son, Cameron Mitchell Jr. aka Channing Mitchell who, along the way, meets sexy bartender Maureen McCormick (Marcia from THE BRADY BUNCH) and he gets lucky.

But she gets unlucky as two of the adults barge in, and one guy played by character-actor Peter Jason rapes her, and its here the film becomes what Mr. Graver knows best, exploitation, but without any shock or realism. And even as the suddenly not-so-passive son gets his own style of revenge against the drunkards in the desert, the suspense builds at such a sluggish pace it's like watching paint dry on your eyelids... and with really bad colors.
