Indeed awful
21 May 2005 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This low-budget piece of garbage is badly acted, directed and filmed. Once I checked out the "director's" credits, the reason became clear. The few projects he has been involved in are complete junk....he even had a production role in "Manos, the Hands of Fate," considered one of the worst films of all time.

This "Western" actually begins with the singing of a complete church hymn, performed by the worst group of overacting hacks I've ever seen. (Check out "Places in the Heart" for an excellent example of how to effectively incorporate the inclusion of a sung hymn.....ironically, both were shot in the Dallas area.) Avoid this time-killer. I happened to see it on a DVD, "Wacky Western Comedy," which included "Terror of Tiny Town" and a compilation of "Dusty's Trail" episodes. "Tiny" kinda made the rental worthwhile.
