Thriller about a New York ex-cop and an attractive female sheriff who fall in love while investigating a string of mysterious cattle mutilations in a small Colorado town. Urich is great as Reuben Castle, the retired alcoholic police lieutenant out visiting the town with his tomboy daughter. At first he tries to stay out of the case but finds himself involved after the mysterious death of his friend Joe Hiatt, the editor of the local paper whose theories about black helicopters have aroused the ire of cattle baron Ben Morgan. Trying miserably to stay sober, Castle finds himself back in danger and in love, as he and the sheriff work together to get to the bottom of the mystery, encountering incredible danger and resistance from the frightened locals.Written by
This used to play on WTBS. It's nice to have a movie set in ranch country about ranching. Unfortunately, this movie goes downhill from there. It is pretty far-fetched and unlikely, and you might not even catch the point of it. If there are the evil trucks going down the road, why don't the locals know who they belong to and what they're hauling? The acting is okay. I Remember Peter Coyote as being a deputy involved with Urich's daughter, but it's been a while since I've seen this movie. I have read in The Edge of Evil (Word Publishing, 1989) by Jerry Johnston that some cattle mutilations really are caused by organized Satan worshipers using high-tech equipment. Naturally I remembered this movie when I read that. You have to just enjoy this movie and not use your brain too much.
