Fleshburn is a 1984 thriller/mystery film starring Steve Kanaly, Karen Carlson, and Macon McCalman. The movie opens with a group of businessmen who are on a weekend hunting trip in the wilderness. In the group is a man named Boyd Mimmack, who is known to be an unstable and violent individual. During the trip, Boyd falls and injures himself, but instead of seeking help from his companions, he decides to wander into the woods. As the men begin to search for him, they discover a small town called Fleshburn.

The town of Fleshburn is strange and eerie, and the residents are hostile towards outsiders. The businessmen are quickly taken captive and held in a rundown hotel, where they are subjected to a series of horrific, torturous experiences. It soon becomes clear that the town is run by a cult-like group, who are led by a man named Doc Wheeling, played by Macon McCalman. Doc Wheeling is both charismatic and menacing, and his objective is to cleanse the town of evil through violent means.

Steve Kanaly plays Sheriff Gates, a law enforcement officer who is investigating the disappearance of the businessmen. Gates is distrustful of the townspeople and their leader, Doc Wheeling. Despite the resistance he faces, Gates continues his investigation, determined to uncover the truth about the town and the missing men.

Karen Carlson plays a bartender named Sally, who is sympathetic towards Gates and the plight of the businessmen. Sally is a crucial character, as she becomes a confidant for Gates and helps him navigate the town's web of secrets and lies.

As the story progresses, the audience is exposed to the dark history of Fleshburn and the motivations behind Doc Wheeling's actions. The film tackles themes of power, control, and the effects of trauma on individuals and communities.

Fleshburn is a tension-filled movie that builds gradually towards a satisfying climax. It features strong performances from its lead actors, with Macon McCalman standing out as the menacing Doc Wheeling. The movie's soundtrack is also notable, as it effectively adds to the overall sense of dread and unease.

Overall, Fleshburn is a solid thriller that succeeds in keeping the audience engaged and invested in the characters' fates. Its combination of mystery, horror, and action make it an enjoyable watch for fans of the genre.
