Murder in Mississippi (1965)














Starring:

Storyline
Voter registration leads to Murder in Mississippi when a "cracker" Sheriff arrests white dilettante Carol Byrd and two other "Communist Yankees" for "agitating colored folks." Though her friends are killed, Carol is kept alive as the personal sex slave of two white-trash cretins in this nasty lesson in racial intolerance from the director of Olga's House of Shame. The 1964 murders of three civil-rights workers so appalled the nation that Hollywood waited 24 years before tackling the subject with 1988's Mississippi Burning. Not so with this eager-to-offend exploitation gem, loosely based on the killings and geared for the grindhouse crowd, which remains profoundly disturbing today.
