The Poster


I find it funny that it was decided upon to make a poster featuring two of the main characters in the middle of a dramatic scene that never even comes close to happening in the movie. We have Jessica Harper's character unconscious and carried in the arms of the villain, both wearing the same clothes they have on during the scene where they come face to face in the house. Strange to me. I wish all movie poster creators thought this way. We could see Darth Vader and Hans Solo robbing a bank in Mexico, Forrest Gump and Jenny getting abducted by a UFO, and Frodo holding a gun to the head of Samwise.



Or maybe I missed a key scene in this movie. Or maybe it's a deleted scene we'll find upon its very certain DVD release...

The poster depicts some alternate reality scene never in the movie - but the poster did what it was designed to do. It made potential moviegoers curious about the movie enough to plunk down the price of a ticket. I recall seeing the poster as a kid and thinking it looked pretty creepy. I was too young to see THE EVICTORS at the time but I tracked it down years later and I enjoyed the movie quite a bit.

I read this post as I was watching the movie....right as the scene was happening..where the villian is carrying her and she is unconcious. It must have been deleted on the version you were watching. It happens at about 40-45 min in. But her dress is different

Actually the depiction on the poster was in the film. It was during one of the black and white flashback sequences when the man is carrying an conscious Mr. Rhinehart out of the house, right before he puts her in the small out building and sets it on fire.
