Motion Picture Purgatory: When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder? (1979)

Post Thumb:


Motion Picture Purgatory took a couple of weeks off, but Trembles is back today with a blast from the past entitled When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder? from the late 1970’s featuring revival preacher turned actor Marjoe Gortner. I remember it well; it’s a real shame no one has ever released it on DVD so others can experience it.

In the film directed by Milton Katselas, Gortner plays a drug dealer whose car breaks down in a small U.S. town. In turn the townspeople become victim to his unique brand of physical and mental torture. It’s based on a play by Mark Medoff (who also wrote the script) and co-stars Candy Clark, Lee Grant, Hal Linden, Peter Firth, Pat Hingle, Audra Lindley, and Anne Ramsey.
