      Andy: It's like bloody Deliverance...

      Deliverance is a 1972 film that is shot primarily in the rivers and woods of Appalachia. In the film's most psychologically terrifying sequence a sexually-perverted Appalachian native humiliates the character of Bobby (a chubby-faced, defenceless man). He forces the man to first strip down to his underwear. He then makes Bobby squeal like a pig before sodomising him.
