Quotes

[first lines]
T.L. Barston, Bounty Man: Back in the days of the old West, there were these stretches of territory that I think God and nature just plain forgot about... dark and parched and empty as the moons of Mars. Places where sensible men never vertured... where only dreams and phantoms walked. Kind of a way station between civilization and the Ninth Circle of Hell - The Badlands.

It's darker than you think...

For lovers of westerns, this isn't the movie to rent. For those who enjoy a cross of horror mythos, tall tales, and undead vengeance, give it your consideration. Bruce Dern plays the mysterious Bounty Man, a nearly ancient gunslinger who keeps a tattered parasol extended over his buggy, in search of his next (financially lucrative) victim. With a similar format to the more tepid Grim Prairie Tales (Brad Dourif & James Earl Jones telling campfire stories in the Wild West), Into The Badlands gives us three tales, all of which border on the supernatural, held together by the greedy Bounty Hunter played by Dern. Helen Hunt (pre Mad About You, post Girls Just Want To Have Fun), Mariel Hemingway and Dylan McDermott round out the name cast. A twisted ending/beginning adds enormously to the dark feel. An absolute must for players of Pinnacle's Deadlands: The Weird West role-playing game.
