A Headless Horseman Attacks Hippies At A Wild West Theme Park
23 September 2013 | by (NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

As a film, this is truly an awful awful attempt. It's one of those "do it yourself" horror flicks that were so plentiful in the days of the drive-in and then repeated ad nauseum in the 70's on TV as "Creature Features". However this is quite a curio for those who find any of it's themes particularly interesting.

The whole movie takes place at a closed-down "wild west" tourist attraction which once speckled our American highways in great numbers, but now only a few remain. For that reason alone, this film provides a rare time capsule into the great lost Roadside America! The cast of characters are hippies - tie-dye wearing, acid- dropping hippies. There's some yodeling. And of course the titular Headless Horseman who carries around a pretty realistic looking dead head for a bottom-of- the-barrel production such as this.

Bad movie lovers will certainly find much to amuse in this. However, if you are a traditional movie-goer, this inept insanity will certainly try your patience or put you to sleep.
