The Beguiled

John McBurney, a wounded Union soldier during the Civil War, who takes refuge in a prim-and-proper Southern girl's school run by Martha Farnsworth Geraldine Page.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
One of the few interesting attempts to mix the Western and horror genres, this Civil War Gothic was directed by action specialist Don Siegel (Dirty Harry). Clint Eastwood stars as a wounded Yankee soldier who seeks refuge in an all-girl's school in the South. The tension gets pretty thick as the girls want him to stay as their sex-toy, and headmistress Geraldine Page hacks off his leg in a gruesome amputation sequence. It's not a typical Eastwood movie, but fans of atmospheric chills should seek it out. Pamelyn Ferdin is one of the girls, and went on to play Eastwood's role as helpless prisoner in the infamous Toolbox Murders.

    The suggestion here, I think, is that the played women were so pissed off, they cut off something other than what was shown...

    ...if you get my drift!

    Great fun ! (some gore - but fun - campy)!

    This is a bundle of gory fun. Geraldine Page turns in a GREAT performance as the somewhat demented school head mistress. I am continually amazed at her range. She seemingly do any character and make them totally believeable. Not for those with weak stomachs. But - again - a great turn by Geraldine Page. Gory fun! all meant to be a bit campy I think. Enjoy!
