Near the 43 minute mark, Fergus Coffey (Karl Geary) places his hat over Audrey's (Seri DeYoung) face as she lies in the wagon. Immediately afterwards, it cuts to a distant shot of the men riding off with Coffey still wearing his hat, and yet the next shot still shows his hat still on Audrey's face. See more »

A Mixed Bag,But Ultimately Worth It.
22 April 2009 | by Bill357See all my reviews

The first half is a bit dull with it's constantly having the characters (and the viewers) waiting for something to happen.

The actor playing the commanding officer of the Indian hunters, fresh off his role as Loonie Bin Jim in Punisher: Warzone, appears to be playing the same person, only with a stiffly waxed fake mustache and an absolutely dreadful fake southern accent.

What was the point of making him a Southerner? Any Southerner with an ounce of self respect wouldn't have joined the Army in the years following the war between the states, not until the first world war and the institution of the modern draft. Are Yankee filmmakers trying to rewrite history and lay the mass murder of Indians at the feet of the the South? That's their cross to bear! It was the victorious northerners that did to the Indians what they perfected in the countryside and on the battlefields of the south. I think the only reason he's even in this movie is to get some torture in it to satisfy the low brows.

In the last half everything gets better, apparently even the directing! Actual suspense begins to build and the encounters with the Indians begin to become increasingly bizarre. The atmosphere becomes more sinister and the movie begins to take on the aspects of a nightmare in which you can't wake up. The finale is pretty harrowing.

Despite my gripes, it's definitely worth viewing and ten times better than those awful and dull After Dark Horrorfest films.
