Trivia

Despite the on-screen credit for "Two-Fisted Tales", this episode was an original story, though it does share the name of a story from issue 37 of the "Two-Fisted Tales" comic book. The credit is due to the fact that this was produced as an episode of the unsold anthology series Two-Fisted Tales (1992). The comic book of the same name is a war anthology and did not feature any Western or horror stories. See more »

Spooky horror-Western episode
21 July 2011 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Cocky young outlaw Billy Quintaine (an excellent performance by Neil Giuntoli) stops off at a rundown one-horse town that's populated by the ghosts of his victims. Director Richard Donner, working from a compelling script by Frank Darabont, relates the absorbing story at a steady pace, stages the bloody and exciting shoot-outs with real flair and panache, and does an expert job of creating and sustaining a brooding, gritty, and grimly serious tone that becomes more increasingly bleak and unsettling as the plot unfolds towards a violent downbeat conclusion. The uniformly sound acting from the bang-up cast helps a whole lot: Giuntoli excels in the lead, David Morse brings a quiet intensity and conviction as determined Texas Ranger Tom McMurdo, Roderick Cook does well as wily Irish carpetbagger Cornelius Bosch, and Tommy Townsend contributes a lively turn as hearty tour guide Big Bart. Moreover, there's a strong and provocative central message about how it's impossible for a desperado to run away from his own dark past. Hiro Narita's sun-burnt golden-hued cinematography provides an appropriately dusty'n'desolate look while Michael Kamen's twangy and harmonic score hits the melodic spot. An eerie and effective episode.
