Quotes

Joe Ryan: Benedict, just why are you back in town? And what are you trying to pull, up at the Mary-Ann?
Benedict: No one's been near that worthless mine for years
Joe Ryan: I'm not so sure it's worthless. You ain't hanging on here for nothing.
Benedict: Joe Ryan, your father was a bad man in this town. What are you trying to do - live up to his record?
Joe Ryan: Listen to me you old carcass, there's plenty of gold in that mine somewhere, and half of it belongs to me. And I've got a deed right here to prove it.
Benedict: Yes, and I got a pretty good idea...

An "old house" WESTERN!
8 July 1999 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ) – See all my reviews

This western reminds me of an "old house film".....a ghost town with a "real" ghost! Secret panels, shadows on the walls, eyes peering thru slits in the walls, etc.

It also gives Blue Washington the chance for some great "scared reaction" comedy (ala' Mantan Moreland or Willie Best).

I don't much care for westerns, but the "supernatural" elements in this film make it worth watching!
