The Brainless Wonder
5 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A phantom horseman who appears every night with a human head tucked under his arm lets it be known that he is searching for eight gunfighters.

Not sure I really get the bad reviews who all say it's a lot of fun, etc. This movie is written like an Ed Wood film and directed like a porno. In fact the director did some porn and the flick is filled with actors who did porn or soft core largely in the 70s.

Others are one shot wonders who never worked again and some are whose character names are their actual names.

I disagree with the reviewers who say this is a hoot and then give it one star. I think it deserves one star. It's actually a horrible movie filled with bad kumbaya folk music and even worse acting.

They should have made this as a porno. The title character is dismal and you can see his head under the robe. He doesn't really show up until the movie is nearly done and that's after you're forced to listen to all that horrible hippie folk music.
