Howdy, partner. This film blows.
20 February 2003 | by HarryWardenSee all my reviews

I love Westerns. I love Horror.

Naturally, when I saw a trailer for this many years ago, I was stoked. However, after seeing the final product, I wish it had stayed buried.

While displaying some decent cinematography (which was all they showed in the trailer; surprise-surprise), everything else in this film was a lousy mesh of Z-grade talent. Among the lifeless direction, we get a dude ranch set, horrible editing, a soundtrack consisting of three drum beats and sound design worse than a student film. These aspects were the highlight of the movie.

Where 'Legend of the Phantom Rider' ('Pelgidium' at least sounded interesting) really screws the pooch is in it's casting. I've seen people on daytime soap operas that would make more convincing Old West characters. The lead bald guy (Blade/Pelgidium) should be barred from the acting profession - he's as bad as they come. Even reliable actors like Angus Scrimm and Denise Crosby felt gone.

Did I mention that every scene moved like a slug at a salt mine?

Please...do yourself a favor and stay as far away from this film as possible.
