Trivia

Over the back of the chesterfield in the cottage you can see a "Hudson's Bay Blanket". A white blanket with multicolored stripes, this blanket has been a staple in Canadian households, particularly cottages, over the years. See more »

Goofs

On the final scene, while standing face to face in an open space (no buildings or other structures casting shadows), Helen's face is brightly lit by sunlight on her left cheek, while Will is in a dim/uniform light. This suggests they were filmed at different times of the day. See more »

He's kind of hunkie and she's kind of horny
11 June 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In October Gale, the winds whip up into gale force when Scott Speedman arrives at the doorstep of widow Patricia Clarkson's home with a bullet in him. Just his luck she's a physician like her late husband.

Scott has a real problem going for him. He served some time in Canadian prison for killing a man and he's out now. But the father of the guy he killed, Tim Roth doesn't think that was enough. He's on the hunt now for Speedman.

Do I have to say more, Clarkson gets an itch revived in her and maybe Speedman's the one to scratch. In any event she's drawn into his personal war with Roth.

The climax is staged very well, Roth gives an outstanding performance of a truly demented man.

Nicely acted and photographed Canadian production.
