Adam Kenneth Wilson,
As Jon (Shawn Welling and Michael Biehn) and Joy Ford (Tory Tompkins) move into the small town of DarkHorse, mysterious and supernatural occurrences threaten to tear the town apart. Teenage girl abductions and a chain of serial killings force good ol' boy Sheriff McElroy (Lee Majors and Larry Wade Carrell), the town's rugged symbol of justice, to use any means necessary to keep his beloved town from tumbling into chaos, and when Joy's nieces (Chachi Gonzales and Presley Bishop) are kidnapped, they must race to find the abductor, and in turn come face to face with a monster.
This indie film has a deliberately old-fashioned feel, being more light hearted and comic approach, being an adventure for a group of outsiders trying to meld into a small Texas town. The jokes for the most part offer minor chuckles and smiles enough to get us through some slow moments. The direction and writing does go for very sentimental reflection on people just trying to do the right thing. Even the bad guy who is really bad is still struggling for what is right.
The writing juggles the tones well but has major pacing issues in the center as at some parts the film skips through character development, such as the back story of the central characters. Lee Majors and Michael Biehn cameos were given particularly good roles as they work well together as the crazed and the sane.
Definitely not a masterpiece but an enjoyable movie to watch, especially if you like classic indie movies.
