One of the last projects made by the late David Carradine when its title was "The Rain," this horror tale casts him as one of the residents of a farming town with a haunted history.
Literally parched more than 100 years earlier, the area became a site for the sacrifice of children in exchange for desperately needed rainfall. Now a resulting curse has a lethal effect on the populace. Dee Wallace Stone ("E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial") and Richard Lynch are among the other acting veterans in the cast. DVD extras: audio commentary by director and co-writer Douglas Schulze; deleted scenes; behind-the-scenes footage; storyboards. ** (R: N, P, GV)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
