Will his own parinoia direct his fate?
15 August 2002 | by See all my reviews



Stranger gets off train in a sem-deserted little town in the days of the old west carrying with him his fear and suspicions of his fellow man. Will his own parinoia direct his fate? I liked this one, great acting, and an interesting story. The Swede (David Warner appears timid and frightful, but later he gets a few drinks in him and transforms into your common baroom type nuisance. In many ways the story was gripping. No great final climaxes, but I found it to be enjoyable and it sticks with you after the movie is over
