Rednecks are a common feature of films. They are usually racist, violent and stupid. But the rednecks in the list below go one further - they are deeply villainous to the point of murder. Inbred, unhinged, they make for a very disturbed enemy as they reenact warped family dynamics or vent their hatred of non locals in a hideous fashion. Whenever you think of the term Redneck, it is nearly always attributed to people from the southern states of the USA - but this assumption is prejudicial. Rednecks lurk all over the world - in some areas you might call them 'yokels' but one thing is sure among them all - they are local people with local ideas who cannot tolerate intrusion in their community of outsiders. Or in some cases below, the rednecks actively enjoy 'normal people' coming into their territory so they can have their wicked way with them - torture, mutilation and cannibalism are the flavour of the day. Below are some notorious screen rednecks who are at the stronger side of the scale of redneck nastiness. The really bad guys you wouldn't want to meet in a public place with police around, let alone a wood.
My first film watched was Carrie aged 2 on my dad's knee. Educated at The University of St Andrews and Trinity College Dublin. Fan of Arthouse, Exploitation, Horror, Euro Trash, Giallo, New French Extremism. Weaned at the bosom of a Russ Meyer starlet. The bleaker, artier or sleazier the better!
