A Phantasmagoric Nightmare...
12 October 1998 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

One of the better horror movies I've seen in the last decade, Ghost Town has a dreamlike quality to it that lends to its weird combination of Western, ghost movie, and conventional horror/slasher flick. From the opening sequence (where an invisible horseman pursues a modern-day automobile), to the bizarre sequences with The Dealer, to the final wrap-up, the whole pic segues in from dreams to flashbacks, from modern-day to 1890s, until you're not sure exactly where you stand. Highly recommended.
