A Mixed Bag of Western, Violence and Mystery in a Deceptive Low Budget Movie
6 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

In 1865, while traveling with her family close to the city of Sogus, Sarah Jenkins (Denise Crosby) is raped and her husband and son are cowardly killed by a group of outlaws. Sarah and her daughter survive and walk to Sogus, where they are advised by a local to leave the place, which is dominated by the bandits leaded by the maleficent Blade (Robert McRay). However, tired and starving, they decide to stay in the town and the owner of a store and his wife lodge them. The gang of evil criminals rules the city with fear and violence, killing people without motive. Pelgidium, a mysterious rider with a deformed face, appears in the town as if he were listening to the prayers of the locals, and faces the bad guys. "Legend of the Phantom Rider" is a mixed bag of western, violence and mystery. This deceptive low budget movie was released on VHS in Brazil, the art of the cover is prepared to attract the viewers as if it were a horror film, but indeed it is a violent western. The soundtrack, with the constant sound of drums usually used in the climax of the story, is very boring. I did not like this film. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Lenda do Cavaleiro Fantasma" ("The Legend of the Phantom Rider")
