Style Over Substance Horror Western
3 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

This compares with Garden Of Evil (1954) as one of the great style over substance westerns of all time!

The style comes from the carefully spoken words of Gene Barry ("The Devil") as he questions Miss Sarah. Gene's bitchy lines to the farmer are also a standout, the viewer really feels that there is something a bit off about Mr Barry, but no violence or bad language here, this is a class act all the way.

More style comes from the atmosphere charged score than resembles music done by the late Leith Stevens. And let us not forget the location filming in the desert!

The story does not amount to a hill of beans, but who cares, not since Irwin Allen can I think of a production that did such a good job of making something out of nothing.

This is outstanding and Gene Barry's finest work.

Please don't send me emails requesting a copy of this rare TV movie, it screened in Australia in the early 1990s and has not been seen since...maybe The Devil got it?
