Interesting Rough Riders western with haunted house elements.
25 January 2000 | by (Long Island Motor Parkway) – See all my reviews

A Rough Riders film. Interesting B western that contains some haunted house elements. Well acted (Buck doesn't do quite as well as the others), decent plot involving bad guys hiding out in the ghost town of Pickwick, Nevada, sometime after 1880. Some exciting chase scenes & shoot-outs near the end. Both Tim & Buck were in their early 50s here & instead of the two of them together, the Rough Riders probably could have used a younger romantic interest to complete the usual trio formula.
