Just leave a little silver in the collection box...

Westerns... so hard to find a good one, and mixing evil, I mean the devil, guns and horses… after watching "Gallowwalkers" a deep sense of disappointment made me sight with disapproval, because if I remember well I haven't seen a good one since "Good for Nothing" because "True Grit" was just a remake, so cautiously I started watching "Dead in Tombstone". To begin with, Mickey Rourke is more likable than when he was in his youngest days and Danny Trejo no much to say: always looking tough and mean. Both actors are a good-odd combination; one as Lucifer, and the other one as undead, make this clear, not a zombie!, I could say that this is one of the best performances of Danny Trejo; "Guerrero" fitted him like a ring! This movie has the entire elements to keep you entertained, is believable as a western and visually acceptable with its supernatural theme. The direction and writing is at his best, and considering its budget very well done, the editing keeps the pace of the movie and the soundtrack keeps up with it, it reminded me of those old movies where the actors where "forced" to act, back then when CGI wasn't so imposing. Of course this movie is far to be Silverado, but between choosing to watch the latest entry of "Chucky" or "Dead in Tombstone" I'll stick with the black horse and the long leather trench coats, in a way that I wouldn't mind a sequel as long as the story is as good or better than this one, to tell the truth I like this movie better than I did "Machete" with all its stars. Sometimes, less is better!
