Directed by Jeff Wedding
USA 2019

 

When a dim-witted widower and his teenage son offer a beautiful young woman refuge on their farm, their living situation escalates from hysterical comedy to maddening horror once they discover she's not who she says she is.

***

A simplistic Tennessee farmer (Victor Hollingsworth) whose wife died long ago keeps his family farm running with this help of his equally dim son Caleb (William Ray Watson). When his Paw takes in a hurt young woman named Sylvia (Jackie Kelly) whom he found wandering Tennessee backroads, Caleb’s youthful sexual fantasies soon come to fruition. But all is not as it seems when Caleb catches Sylvia also seducing his Paw. And later, when the Rev. Simms (Wynn Reichert) comes calling to check on small-town rumors about the family’s new living arrangements, Paw and Caleb convince Sylvia to seduce him as well, effectively bribing him to remain quiet.

ADDITION: Gypsyroot Productions Blu-ray (November 2019): So, Jeff Wedding's Tennessee Gothic fun-horror Indie-effort has been released on Blu-ray. It was shot on Kodak Super 16 mm stock and, hence has a grainy, textured appearance. However, colors can look relatively deep and the image presentation is, predictably, consistent. It is housed on a single-layered disc with a supportive bitrate for the 1.5-hour film. The film does have a its fair share of nudity and blood-spattering - so further NSFW captures are show at the bottom of this review.

On their Blu-ray, Gypsyroot (authoring looks like Vinegar Syndrome with the 'Reels' menu label for chapters... and five of them) use a linear PCM mono track (16-bit) in the original English language. It is at the mercy of the production limitations but sounds acceptable. There is a 'Southern-themed' score (as in a kind of eerie Dukes of Hazzard way) by Greg Bennett (his first film credit), sounding supportive, if not deep or immersive in the uncompressed. It worked for the film's many moods. They offer optional English (SDH) subtitles on their Region FREE Blu-ray.

There is a commentary with director Jeff Wedding, producer Kate Groshong and actor/produce Harry Walker and they start out having great fun which continues as they relate auditions, production hurdles and how they were dealt with and much more. There is a Behind The Scenes video for 25-minutes with cinematographer Eric Stanze and other cast, a long stills slideshow, trailer, outtakes and an Easter Egg of performed music (band playing).

I liked Tennessee Gothic seeing it less of a comedy than a horror - the 'adult'-ness (sex and nudity) actually gave it an air of realism and the 'Jeff Foxworthy'-ish hickspolitation humor kept it light.  Jeff Wedding did an excellent job here with minimal resources and I loved the ending! Fans of this brand of grassroots genre filmmaking may wish to pick up the Blu-ray. It was far better than I was anticipating. Go for it.
