MACON COUNTY LINE REVIEWED
“Macon County Line” spotlights The Vint Brothers, as they star in a Max Baer production. The former Jethro Bodine writes and produces this rape revenge film about a couple of brothers mistaken for some other drifters. Now, they have to evade a crazed Sheriff who wants to avenge his murdered wife. What follows is a bloody finale that will end in a way that nobody could expect. No wonder it went on to become the most profitable film of 1974. Just avoid the sequel. It’s bad.
Max Baer proves to be a capable creative talent and supporting player. His Sheriff is dirty, but in a way that feels natural for being in the Backwoods for years. The poor Vint Brothers used their natural familial connection to help solidify the terror of being targeted by an enraged redneck. The sense of anger and targeted rage is rarely captured on film this well. Many people joke about this changing their image of Jethro, but it goes beyond that…this is pure rage.
