A wrong turn during a business trip leads an unsuspecting yuppie down a perilous road of terror after he foolishly runs afoul of Marcy; a psychotic, redneck, homeless woman who dwells deep in the ominous swamplands of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. After capturing him and caging him like an animal, the depraved Marcy methodically tortures and rapes her helpless male captive. Upon his escape, a savage fight to the death ensues where only the most cunning of the two will survive!
One of the few shot on video movies in history to be helmed by a woman, Backwoods Marcy was written, produced, scored, and directed by actress turned filmmaker Dawn Murphy, who also turns in a tour de force acting performance in a dual role that earned her a Best Actress nomination at the 1999 B-Movie Awards. Co-starring Dave Castiglione (Love is a Stranger), Pamela Sutch (Psycho Sisters), and W.A.V.E. founder Gary Whitson (Dead North), Saturn’s Core is proud to present this long sought after, strangely feminist, ’90s era SOV horror epic, newly uncovered and restored from the vaults of the infamous South Jersey based studio Sharkey Video. As an added bonus, Backwoods Marcy now comes paired with another Sharkey Video curio; writer / director Dave Castiglione’s 1995 brain-melting, holiday themed, SOV comedy An Ex-Hooker’s Christmas Carol, which arrives newly restored and accompanied by a wealth of extras of its own!
STARRING: Dawn Murphy, Dave Castiglione, Pamela Sutch, Gary Whitson
