In his autobiography, "The Kid Stays in the Picture," Robert Evans says that this movie had the following working titles: "The Hell-Bent Kid", "Rope Law", "Enough Rope", "Quick Draw", "Quick Draw at Red Rock", and "The Hell-Bent Kid II". This mistakenly created the impression that Evans was appearing in more films than he actually was. The final title came from a marketing exec trying to cater to both western and horror film audiences. See more »
can you say "gothic, psychologically gripping, oater?"
I must confess that I saw this movie an awful long time ago, when I was just a kid. However, it made a big impression on me and it blended genres in a way that I hadn't ever seen a film before. The story sort of reminds me of "Psycho," but set in the old west, and to a lesser degree, set in some deserted shipyards and other industrial locations. Anyhow, ever since I've been dying to see it again. Filmed in beautifully harsh and stark black and white.
