If you’re deciding where to go on your summer vacation this year, maybe you should heed the warning of rural-set movies like “Wild,” “The Blair Witch Project,” “Cape Fear” and “Deliverance.”
Aaah… the great American outdoors. It can sure be beautiful, but beware: The further afield you get, the harder it is to find help. Help with what, you may ask? Just ask the boys from DELIVERANCE, currently playing on the Sundance Channel: deviant lunatic hicks, o’course!

Looking for a great way to beat the heat? Summer has always been a time for everything to run high: temperature, hormones, blood pressure, nerves. And a summer thriller is the perfect way to make them all go over the top. This is the season that has seen some of the best horror and thriller classics of all time, like ROSEMARY’S BABY, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and THE SIXTH SENSE. And those titles are in great company with the following list.
Can you handle all this heat? No, seriously, can you? Because it’s not just the weather that’s hot — the movies on offer this week are seriously steamy, from the downright uncomfortable (DELIVERANCE) to the height of young lust (Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN).
Our Thriller Thursdays selection is John Boorman’s DELIVERANCE, with its dueling banjos, menacing hillbillies and all.
