Well made horror/western
16 May 2005 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

I have a soft spot for direct-to-video horrors of the 80's and 90's(don't get me started on the terrible cinema of today) and this is one of my favorites. The horror and western collide perfectly in this original little film.

Lawman Franc Luz, who does a remarkable job, searches for a missing beauty, Catherine Hickland, in the middle of the desert. During his search, spooky things happen to him, as he sees a phantom rider that terrorizes him at every port of call. Stumbling through the desert, he happens upon an abandoned town, and as a storm approaches, he seeks shelter in one of the buildings.

Luz is quickly involved in an age-old town struggle against an evil criminal, creepily portrayed by Skaggs. Skaggs has abducted Hickland because she bears a striking resemblance to an old brothel house singer he was once smitten with.

If you enjoy solid horror films with substance rather than blood and guts, than this little gem is right up your alley. I highly recommend picking this up.
