Trivia

A title card at the beginning of this film sets the time and place of the movie as "Gippsland, Australia 1896". Gippsland is in the state of Victoria in Australia. However, this movie's exteriors weren't actually filmed there. The Blue Mountains in New South Wales stood in for Gippsland, Victoria. See more »

OK Western
1 February 2005 | by (The House of Good Schlock) – See all my reviews

I watched an old VHS copy of this film. The box suggested a Night of the Western Dead, but the film is actually an Australian Western. Turns out director Terry Bourke is pretty good at it. Its about a hotel run by Dame Judith Anderson and her husband(?) weirdo doing the Psycho hotel number. Alex Cord plays an American bounty hunter looking for a sex pervert that is on the run. His story is the most interesting. The film could have left out the hotel thingy-story. Made in 1974. I'm recommending the film as a time filler. Please try to get it on DVD, as the old Paragon VHS is hard to find and kind of hard to watch: the picture is very grainy.
