Curse of the boring film.
15 December 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Mark Callahan inherits a cowboy ghost town from his uncle.He takes his fiancée Brenda and a group of hippie friends there,but it seems that a legendary Headless Horseman is prowling the area and scaring people to death..."Curse of the Headless Horseman" by Leonard Kirtman is even worse than his earlier horror schlock "Carnival of Blood".The story is boring,the acting is amateurish and there is almost no blood.Still "Curse of the Headless Horseman" offers some jaw-droppingly psychedelic moments for the lovers of low-budget trash.The faking of headless horseman is priceless.4 decapitated heads out of 10.A chore to sit through.
