Mild-mannered American mathematician and his wife set up shop in rural England. The locals have it in for them.

Long banned or cut in the UK because of the notorious rape scene, Peckinpah's tale of the worm that turned finally arrives uncut. Politics aside, very powerful grab-you-by-the-throat-with-a-bear-trap film-making.

June Brown & Chloe Franks often appear in the credits, but their roles were never filmed.
