Rod Steiger, Ned Beatty and Ed Lauter provide formidable "cast insurance" in the moody low-budgeter Black Water. Beatty's casting is particularly apropos, since the film bears traces of Deliverance. A man from the city decides to unwind by taking a fishing trip in Tennessee. He has barely unpacked his tackle box before a group of inbred goons accuse him of committing a particularly heinous murder. Black Water is based on Minnie, a novel by Hans Werner Kettenbach.
