"We're gonna play Simon Says, and this," Ma Barker says, pointing to her Tommy gun, "is Simon." Ma Barker (Shelley Winters) and her four sons (Don Stroud, Robert De Niro, Clint Kimbrough, Alex Nicol) leave the poverty of the Ozarks for a life of sadism, incest, murder, kidnapping and violence... while being chased cross-country by the FBI. Bruce Dern co-stars as Kevin Dirkman, a homicidal maniac who serves some time with the Barker boys and joins Ma Barkers gang as they take on the Great Depression the only way they know how in this explosive saga based on the lives of the actual gang. Stylishly directed by cult legend Roger Corman (The Wild Angels) with a stellar supporting cast that includes Pat Hingle, Scatman Crothers and Robert Walden.
