Grade z horror hippie cowboy hybrid
21 May 2002 | by (Los Angeles CA) – See all my reviews

This film is somewhat intestering example of grade Z filmmaker, from a guy who was responsible for something called "Carnival of Blood" before moving on to hard core porno. Some footloose hippie types move out to a western ranch to help a friend, but the headless horsemen starts knocking them off, then there is a surprise ending. There seems to be no script, but the actors do a surprisingly good job just sort of cobbing the scenes together. It's kind of fun if you are in the right mood, the place kind of looks like the Spann ranch, and they sure don't make them like this anymore. The "Something Weird" video comes with trailers and other stuff
