The Dark Side Of The Old West
31 October 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Blustery bounty hunter James Earl Jones and jittery eastern tenderfoot Brad Douriff share a campfire on the prairie and swap horror stories, some of the supernatural variety while others are all too natural.

This is a low budget but ambitious and atmospheric horror western, worth a look for fans of either genre, though some fans of traditional westerns might not be amused.

The vignettes are great but the wraparound with Jones and Douriff is so entertaining that the stories they tell pale in comparison.

Other than Jones and Douriff, the best performance in the film is by William Atherton as a frontier dad with a dark secret.
