Synopsis

Jesco White's drugs of choice are gasoline and lighter fluid, plus the high he gets from performing the wild mountain dancing steps taught him by his Daddy. But it's reform school and a lunatic asylum that teach Jesco how to fight, and fight he does. redneck exploitation is gorgeously reinvented as jesco explodes from one burst of trailer trashing rage to the next. Dingy trailers, guns and moonshine - the trademarks of West Virginia life - are celebrated, alongside a psychobilly soundtrack, as savage exotica in this brutal and demented hillbilly saga.
